The Williamson County Symphony Orchestra will be performing it’s second concert series of the year! In our tenth season – The Journey Continues with the Orchestra’s presentation of “A Jubilant Christmas”.
After performing a free concert for the troops and their families at Fort Hood on Saturday, December 10, the Orchestra returns to Williamson County performing in a joint concert with the Leander High School Choir at the high school’s magnificent Don Tew Performing Arts Center on Friday December 16 followed by a performance in the gorgeous sanctuary of St William Catholic Church in Round Rock on Saturday, December 17.
Hear how Christmas melodies were woven together for the Boston Pops, dance to a little Nutcracker, shout Hallelujah, bounce around in a Brazilian sleigh, roast a few chestnuts, and Jingle like Souza would do it – what A Jubilant Christmas concert this will be.
