Press Release, December 11, 2014

The York Symphony Orchestra’s annual holiday concert returns to Trinity Anglican Church in Aurora for two performances on Saturday December 20th.

 

The concerts feature a blend of holiday music performed by the full orchestra – traditional carols, popular songs, a touch of the classics, and of course, the annual carol sing-a-long. Music director Denis Mastromonaco has made a few exciting changes this year, but promises long-time fans that their perennial favourites, like Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride and A Christmas Festival, are still on the program.

 

This year’s guests include soprano Jennifer Tung and tenor Jonathan Sandberg singing favourite excerpts from Handel’s Messiah and other Christmas classics, and young soprano Marina Salis performing a special arrangement of the runaway hit “Let it Go” from the Disney feature Frozen.

 

There will also be a very special performance in the spirit of the season, featuring six soloists from the orchestra.

 

The two concerts on December 20th are at 3:30 and 8:00 pm at the church, 79 Victoria Street in Aurora. Tickets may be purchased by calling 416 410-0860, or at the door.
