Turn on the Cheer – Holiday Lights Festival – Thursday, Nov 24 – 7PM

The Nebraska Wind Symphony is playing the Making Spirits Bright Concert at the Holland Performing Arts Center as part of this year’s Holiday Lights Festival. The tree lighting activities are at 6pm.  The 7pm concert is FREE to the public and no tickets are needed! We will provide great music for all ages to kick-off this joyous season. You will hear a few holiday favorites, some with a new twist. We will be playing 2 new holiday pieces written by Larry MacTaggart. Tenor Ryan Daly joins us to sing some classic holiday tunes and lead the audience in a sing-a-long.

The lobby of the Holland Center lobby opens at 5:30pm as a shelter from the cold for those attending the 6pm tree lighting. The doors to the concert hall do not open until 6:30.pm. Guests can sit in the orchestra section (main floor) or on the first tier.

This event is a fundraiser for the Food Bank of the Heartland. Please consider making a donation when you attend this concert.

Bring the whole family down to the Holland and enjoy the music of the holidays.
