The world-famous all-Russian 40-member Moscow Symphony Orchestra will usher in the spirit of the holiday season with an unforgettable evening of festive music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, at the Allegany High School Auditorium, 616 Sedgwick St.
The holiday pops concert, part of the Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University, will include favorites from such composers as Tchaikovsky and Strauss, with a mixture of holiday, Broadway and movie compositions, plus a special sing-along portion featuring the vocal talents of an Allegany County High School All Star Choir presenting Craig Courtney’s “Musicological Journey Through the Twelve Days of Christmas” and a Christmas carol medley of traditional holiday songs.
Established in 1989 as the first privately supported orchestra in Russia, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra has become an integral part of Moscow cultural life. The orchestra has conducted successful concert tours of the United States, Europe, Japan and South Korea, and in 2001 took part in the Festival of Russian Art in Cannes, France.
A special Mountain Reflections package is also available with this performance. The Frostburg State University bus will transport patrons from Allegany High School to Rocky Gap Resort to view the Mountain Reflections Holiday Lights following the concert.
Advanced seating purchase is required. Proceeds from the sale of bus seats will be donated to the Western Potomac Chapter of the American Red Cross.
