ARTS Pick: Family Holiday Concerts

Among the finest local traditions is when the Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia and UVA’s University Singers join forces for the Family Holiday Concerts conducted by Michael Slon. This year’s program includes “Carol of the Bells,” “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus,” as well as performances by jazz vocalist Stephanie Nakasian and orchestra concertmaster Daniel Sender. The engaging, charismatic Slon pulls the crowd in for a “Twelve Days of Christmas” sing-along and assures all a good time.

Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4. $10-45, times vary. Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 924-3376.
