More than 300 musicians help celebrate the holiday season
December 2-18, 2016 (select dates)
Performing both delightful seasonal classics and glorious gospel music, the Philly Pops Christmas Spectacular is a marvelous way for the whole family to enjoy the holidays together.
Once again, Verizon Hall in the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts will be filled with the gorgeous sounds of the season. A cheerful performance for the entire family, the Philly Pops Christmas Spectacular features a special mix of joyous choirs, merry sing-a-longs and a special visitor from the North Pole.
This year’s performance features vocalist Tony DeSare, who has garnered national acclaim and three top ten Billboard jazz albums. Tony is known for his 17 versions of “Jingle Bells,” which include Tango, Klezmer, Spanish, Michael McDonald, Neil Diamond and Elton John.
The POPS ushers in each of its ten shows with before and after entertainment in the lobby, including visits from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and strolling Victorian carolers.
