The Mobile Symphony's "Magic of Christmas"

Posted: Updated:

The Mobile Symphony will bring the magic of Christmas to the Saenger Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 10, at 2:30 p.m., in a concert featuring lush arrangements of holiday classics, traditional Christmas carols and selections from movie favorites such as Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street and White Christmas. 

“We like the challenge of keeping our annual Christmas performances fresh, and this year we’re pulling out all the stops to create a concert that’s truly magical,” says J.C. Barker, MSO’s general manager and director of artistic administration. “Not only will you hear the best Christmas music in town, but you’ll also see the Saenger decked out in glittering holiday finery like you’ve never seen it before.” 

Ron Barrett, popular Mardi Gras designer, is building a winter wonderland throughout the theater complete with trees, snowmen and, of course, Santa. 

The orchestra will be joined by soprano Diane Penning, who last appeared with the MSO for a Valentine’s pops concert in 2011, and Mobile’s Singing Children, the Gulf Coast’s top youth chorus. 

Teresa Cheung, who was at the podium for last year’s holiday concert, returns as guest conductor. She is music director of Pennsylvania’s Altoona Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets are $15-$75 and can be purchased online at www.mobilesymphony.org, by phone at 251-432-2010, or at the symphony box office, 257 Dauphin Street. Reduced-price student tickets are available for both performances.

The Mobile Symphony has been a regional orchestra for the central Gulf Coast since 1997. Scott Speck serves as music director. In addition to offering a full season of classical and pops concerts, the orchestra serves the area with a wide range of educational and outreach programs including student performances, a string academy and a youth orchestra.
