Come Celebrate the Season with the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra! Pick from two festive performances with music including themes of peace and thanksgiving. The two family-friendly shows perfectly frame downtown’s Canopy of Lights: first a shorter concert at 5:30pm (with a special guest from the North Pole!) finishing just in time to catch the Canopy of Lights celebration on the Square, followed by an expanded 8pm show as a great way to warm up after the lights have been lit.

Special guests include Sylvia McNair narrating a unique ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Lucia Walker singing I Dreamed a Dream, and dancers from Motion Arts Dance Academy helping give life to excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.
