December is fast approaching, which means that holiday-themed entertainments will shortly be clamoring for your attention. One of the biggest is the Fresno Philharmonic’s “Home for the Holidays,” which will play 8 p.m. Saturday at the Saroyan Theatre. I’m giving away three pairs of tickets to the event. These are very nice seats, rows L and O. Here’s a description of the concert:
Guest conductor Carl Topilow (pictured) will lead the Fresno Philharmonic in an evening of favorites that include selections from the “Nutcracker Suite,” “Polar Express,” “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.” The orchestra will be joined by the Master Chorale of the Fresno Community Chorus directed by Anna Hamre for seasonal favorites including the Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah, “Silent Night,” “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and more. Dan Pessano of Good Company Players will join the Philharmonic onstage for ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
