The concert will include Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite,” a brand new arrangement from the gentlemen of Cripple Creek, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and arrangements of Mannheim Steamroller and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, among other highlights.

“Holiday at the Pops has sold out for many years,” said LCSO Executive Director Tim King. “With the growing pandemic it is imperative that the health

and safety of our musicians, patrons and staff remain our number-one concern. Duneland Media has partnered with us to create a pay per view option so the music can continue. This way, our patrons can enjoy the LCSO and usher in the holiday season with us safely from the comforts of their home.”
