The Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra (CHSO) recently opened its Seventeenth Season on November 5, 2016 to an enthusiastic audience, and is now in the final stages of preparation for its annual Holiday Pops concert on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 7:30 PM in the Milford Town Hall Grand Ballroom.
“Holiday Pops” is always one of the most popular concert presentations of the CHSO season, and last year was a complete sell out for the first time in its history.
This year, the CHSO – under the direction its Founding Executive & Artistic Director, Paul Surapine – will again be joined by The Greater Milford Community Chorus, directed by Daniel Zabinski.
“Last season, the GMCC joined us for Holiday Pops for the first time ever, and they were absolutely wonderful to work with,” said Surapine. “In fact, they sounded so good, that my wife Susan and several of her friends immediately joined the chorus after the Holidays and will be on stage with them this season when we perform!”
The CHSO Holiday Pops concert has already become a heralded tradition of the region’s Holiday celebrations, and includes a number of “CHSO Signature” pieces each year on the program, including the beautiful Mannheim Steamroller version of “Silent Night”, the Amy Grant song, “Breath of Heaven”, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” and the “Holiday Pops Sing a Long.” The evening is also graced with a visit from Santa Claus himself, who stops in to greet young and old alike during the concert!
The Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra Holiday Pops is made possible with a major Claflin Hill Business Partnership Grant from The Milford Federal Savings & Loan Association and additional support from the Harmon Foundation.
Tickets are on sale for Holiday Pops and the remainder of the CHSO season as well, and can be purchased online through the CHSO website at www.claflinhill.org or by calling 508-478-5924.
The Milford Town Hall is located at 52 Main Street, Route 16 in Downtown Milford and is fully handicapped accessible.
