The Smell of Sugar and Cinnamon still Wafts from your Oven as your Cookies are Cooling
The smell of sugar and cinnamon still wafts from your oven as your cookies are cooling, enticing you to eat the whole batch. The palms of your hands are lined with paper cuts from gift wrap and blisters from too much ribbon curling. The thought of spending your evening watching another “made for TV” special just doesn’t appeal. You’re over the festive baking, shopping, and bad cartoons. How about checking out some local music events to brighten your spirit? (Besides, getting you out of the house gets you away from the cookies and bad TV! Your waistline says thank you.)
On Wednesday December 7 at 8:00pm, the Boston Pops celebrate Opening Night for their traditional Holiday Pops concert. Peter Fiedler will be conducting Sleigh Ride, and children’s author Jan Brett will be narrating The Night Before Christmas. The Holiday Pops concert is a Bostonian tradition throughout December at Symphony Hall.
On Friday December 9 and Saturday December 10 at 7:30pm, the Boston Baroque Orchestra will be performing its Grammy-nominated rendition of “Messiah.” This spectacle has moved audiences and received standing ovations in Boston, Carnegie Hall and European capitals. Head over to New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall for an amazing musical performance.
On Sunday December 11 at 6:00pm, The famous Old North Church is hosting its annual Christmas Concert. The candlelit concert in this famous historic setting has become an annual tradition and is a great way to celebrate the holiday season.
