The Mansfield Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are gearing up to warm the hearts of the community with their much-anticipated Holiday Pops concert. Scheduled for December 16 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM, this enchanting evening promises a blend of traditional holiday music and contemporary favorites, creating a perfect backdrop for the festive season. With tickets ranging from $15 to $40, the event is poised to be a family favorite, offering a harmonious start to the holiday celebrations.

A Musical Journey Through the Holidays

Under the baton of Octavio Más-Arocas, the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, comprising over 55 skilled musicians from the local and greater Ohio region, is set to deliver an unforgettable symphonic experience. The evening’s repertoire is a rich tapestry of music, ranging from Leroy Anderson’s “A Christmas Festival” to the timeless “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah. Other highlights include the playful “Jingle Bell Rach” arranged by Katahj Copley and the classical elegance of Johann Strauss Jr.’s “Emperor Waltz, Op. 437”.

A Night for Romance: Date Night at the Symphony

In a delightful twist, the symphony is now offering a special “Date Night” package. Couples who select this option will be treated to wine and sweet treats, adding a touch of romance to the musical evening. This initiative not only caters to couples looking for a unique night out but also supports the symphony’s mission to engage a broader audience.

Choral Wonders Under Jacob Poiner

The choral segment of the evening, under the direction of Jacob Poiner, promises to be equally compelling. The Mansfield Chorus’s vocal prowess will be showcased in pieces like John Rutter’s arrangement of “Joy to the World” and the serene “Stille Nacht” arranged by Chip Davis.

Engaging the Community Through Music

The Mansfield Symphony Orchestra’s mission extends beyond entertainment. It aims to engage musicians, patrons, and youth, fostering a love for symphonic music in the community. This concert is a testament to that commitment, offering a musical experience that resonates with all ages.

For those eager to immerse themselves in this symphonic holiday celebration, tickets are available online here. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the magic of the holiday season through the power of music.
