Muncie, Indiana—Buddy the Elf said it best: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” Sing along to your favorite holiday classics with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra at the annual Fisher/Shafer Holiday Pops Concert on Saturday, December 1 at 4pm in Emens Auditorium. Rejoice in the sounds of the season with special guest artists, the Ball State University Singers and West View Ensemble.
“This year’s Holiday Pops will have some familiar aspects but also a few new twists. Returning will be our favorite show choir, the Ball State University Singers, as well as our new guests, the Westview Elementary Ensemble. Music from the movies Elf and It’s a Wonderful Life will coincide with traditional holiday classics,” said MSO Artistic Director and Conductor, Douglas Droste.
