Holiday Concert 2012
Part of Monterey’s day-long holiday celebration, the Monterey County Pops! presents a program of Holidays Around the World.
Music from France, England, Ukraine; Feliz Navidad (Puerto Rico) and “Hanukkah, Oh Hannukah.” We will conclude with a sing-along (Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and White Christmas), “Go Tell It on the Mountain” (a spiritual) and the “Christmas Jazz Suite.”
Immediately following the concert we will lead a procession to the City of Monterey’s tree lighting ceremony.
As always, this is a free performance open to all. The Golden State Theater’s seating is limited to 1,000 guests so plan to arrive promptly when the doors open at 3:15.
