Come Home for the Holidays by Tracy Geibel

Saturday, Dec. 2

With the holidays right around the corner, the Erie Philharmonic kicks off the most wonderful time of the year with two opportunities to see its “Come Home for the Holidays” performance.

“This year’s concert features a wide variety of the holiday tunes you know and love, with some exhilarating new arrangements. Everything from singalong tunes to ballet music and recognizable holiday classics are included in this year’s ‘Come Home for the Holidays,’” said Patron Services Manager Mathew Anderson.

At the upcoming shows, the Erie Philharmonic and Erie Philharmonic Chorus will perform holiday favorites like “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night,” as well as pieces from Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Nutcracker.

“With over 100 musicians on stage, this concert is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season,” Anderson said about the more than 30-year-old tradition that rings in the rest of the month’s festivities.

The General McLane High School’s Vocal Jazz group and local talent Daniel Cabanillas will also make appearances. Originally from Honduras, Cabanillas now works as the associate director of the office of global admissions at Gannon University and musical co-director with his wife Emily at St. George and St. John Catholic Churches. Previously, he’s performed at dozens of venues throughout Asia, Europe and Latin America.

The first of the two performances takes place at 2:30 p.m. Serving as the more family-friendly option, the matinée runs a total of 90 minutes without an intermission. Before the show, guests can meet with the Erie Philharmonic, expERIEnce Children’s Museum and Lake Erie Ballet for pre-concert activities in the Warner Theatre lobby.

The late show begins at 8:00 and includes two hours of programming with an intermission.
