Don’t miss this toe tapping celebration!

The Symphony Orchestra of Northern Virginia (SONOVA) presents “Brassy Jazzy Christmas,” a strong lineup of Christmas and holiday favorites. Inspired by Stan Keton’s album “A Merry Christmas!,” SONOVA has created a jazz band–substituting french horns for saxophones–for a jazzy feel with a uniquely brassy sound. Audience members can expect to enjoy a number of carols, classical holiday favorites such as selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, movie music from Home Alone composed by John Williams, and even an arrangement of Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas is You. The concert will conclude with crowd favorite Sleigh Ride.

Advance tickets: $20 Adult, $15 Senior, $10 Student. Tickets increase by $5 at the door.
