Music of the season

Dec. 08, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- It's the time of year again for snow, Santa Claus and traditions. No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, traditional music is a staple for holiday festivities.

One such annual tradition in Huntington will be in full swing at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14.

The Huntington Symphony Orchestra is hosting its annual holiday concert, "A Winter's Delight" at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center in downtown Huntington.

In years past, the HSO has had huge success with holiday concerts selling out quickly. T. Hogan Haas, CEO and Executive Director for the symphony said the concert is a must-see.

"As in years past, the holiday concert is extremely popular," said Haas. "It's a great event for the community to come together and celebrate the holiday season. We enjoy being able to kick off the holiday season by putting guests in the holiday spirit."

This year's concert will feature ballerinas and traditional holiday music as well as classical music from composers such as Tchaikovsky, Handel, Vivaldi, Waldteufel and Bloch.

Tickets are available for "A Winter's Delight" starting at $10 through the Huntington Symphony Orchestra office or by calling 304-781-8343.

Following "A Winter's Delight", the HSO will be hosting a composer series fundraiser at the Touma Museum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 9 in Huntington.

The winter season will continue with concerts on March 8 and April 5 at the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center. Tickets are on sale now.

For more info, call 304-781-8343 or go online at www.huntingtonsymphony.org.
