Bells and whistles

The Oratorio Society of Virginia is nearly 50 years into its mission to enrich, inspire, and educate through the performance of choral masterworks, and it’s not slowing down in December. In what has fast become an annual tradition, the venerable ensemble pulls out all the stops for Christmas at the Paramount with a program of traditional Christmas carols, and classical holiday gems like Pergolesi’s “Magnificat,” Tavener’s “The Lamb,” Rutter’s “Candlelight Carol,” the Rachmaninoff “Bogoroditse Devo,” and more. Sit back and let the sugarplums dance in your head.

Saturday 12/15 $17-57, 3pm and 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
