Mobile Symphony Spreads Christmas Spirit with Holiday Classics, December 16 & 17

The Mobile Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will share a sleigh full of yuletide joy at Holiday Classics, Saturday, December 16, at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, December 17, at 2:30 PM, at Mobile’s historic Saenger Theatre.

This festive concert is packed with Christmas favorites and seasonal classics for every musical taste. The concert is led by guest conductor Robert J. Seebacher, former music director of the Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra; and features Mobile’s Singing Children, the Gulf Coast’s premier youth chorus; and bass Kevin Thompson, whose rich and colorful voice has been heard in opera houses around the world.

MSO’s annual Christmas concerts are a Gulf Coast family tradition, and this year’s thrilling program is certain to put the entire family in a merry holiday mood. Kevin Thompson will deliver showstopping performances of classics like Ave Maria and O Holy Night, and he’ll have a bit of fun with the humorous You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.

Mobile’s Singing Children perform traditional carols as well as John Williams’ popular Somewhere in My Memory from the movie Home Alone. As usual, the concert ends with an exciting singalong, giving everyone the thrill of singing Christmas carols with a full orchestra. Tickets are on sale now for $20-$96. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at (251)432-2010 or at the MSO box office located at 257 Dauphin Street. Student tickets are $10. More details can be found online at
