The Symphony Musicians of Fort Worth present:
“A Fort Worth Family Christmas Concert”
Guest conductor will be Ron Spigelman, a long-time favorite conductor in Fort Worth. He will lead the musicians in a pops program including the Fort Worth debut of "The Night before Christmas" by Hollywood and Asian cinema composer, Nathan Wang; Tchaikovsky’s "The Nutcracker Suite, Op.71a," arrangements of Christmas favorites "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Joy To The World," "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," by Arthur Harris for The Philadelphia Orchestra, "Carol of the Bells," arranged by well-known Fort Worth arranger, Phil Kelly, and other traditional holiday favorites.
Also featured is Guest Vocalist Ms. Breggett Rideau, making her debut with the Symphony Musicians of Fort Worth. She is a critically acclaimed songstress and a trailblazer throughout the DFW metroplex when it comes to preserving the rich, cultural heritage of traditional jazz music. According to The Dallas Morning News, “Ms. Rideau is one artist who’s worth searching out. With her deep, resonant voice and her total command of jazz and soul, she’s one of the area’s most promising singers.”
