Our 2017 Holiday Pops Concert is not to be missed! Conductor Dr. Emilian Badea offers a full menu of joyful, glorious musical pieces sure to delight the whole family. Along with your holiday favorites you'll hear new gems from around the world; there's truly something for everyone!

This year we are extremely privileged to feature Boston's queen of Spiritual and Gospel music, Renese King. For her soulful and moving voice, the Boston Globe called her "resplendent", and she was the recipient of the 2011 Boston Music Awards' Gospel Artist of the Year award!

Our own Emilian Badea will perform Astor Piazolla's Oblivion on accordion; a beautiful, wistful tango featured on the soundtrack of the film Henry IV, the Mad King. The South Middle School Chorus, directed by Kate M. Higgins will join the orchestra to sing the Austrian Folksong Still, Still, Still, and Enya's White is in the Winter Night. And we're pleased to welcome pianist Tudor Bota, who will perform the intricate and delightful A Musical Moment, by Romanian composer Nicolae Kirculescu.
