Musical gifts await you as Maestro Zeljko Milicevic and the Rochester Symphony Orchestra “Light Up the Night” in this seasonal concert at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 8, 2023. Traditional favorites of course include Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.” There’s room for “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “Angels We Have Heard on High.” However, unusual selections range from Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Christmas Eve Polonaise” to Tyzik’s arrangement of “Chanukah Suite” and Lehar’s “Gold and Silver Waltz.”
Expect special guests such as Dr. Brandon Ulrich and the Stoney Creek High School Choir. From Oakland University comes Mr. Timothy Michling on the bagpipe. You, of course, will shine in the traditional singalong.
And in full dress come two Marine officers to collect your gifts for “Toys for Tots.” Adeste Fideles and Semper Fidelis.
