Under the direction of Dr. Frank C. Jacobs for more than 20 years, Summit Choral Society fills audience ears with the language of choral music. Scribed by the quail-feathered fingers of a musical genius, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion will serenade souls when sounding out from the formidable vocal cords of the Masterworks Chorale with accompaniment by six soloists, a double orchestra, and petite vocalists from the Children’s Choir Program. Nestle into a grand-tier chair for immediate acoustic digesting or an orchestra spot for direct eye contact with the conductor.

The new Warren Miller film Wintervention is a high-definition action showcase of skiers on extreme terrain in Canada, California, New Zealand, Antarctica, and beyond. On December 11, see the Ryan Humbert Band at their 2nd annual Strung Out for the Holidays benefit concert for the Akron Canton Regional Foodbank, performing Humbert’s originals as well as holiday and radio classics with a special bonus: help him celebrate his thirtieth birthday immediately after the performance with DJs, dancing, and cake in the lobby. For a holiday spectacle that doesn't involve a dog dressed as Santa, scope out the Christmas Under the Stars concert to hear holiday classics sung by the witty British singer Helen Welch, backed by show choirs from Miller South and ETC. The theater is especially excited to present the return of The Festival of Nations, with a family-friendly cultural food tastings, interactive activities, and international performances ranging from Allegro Dance Company’s Italian moves to Irish step dancing to the Native American Lakota Nation Dancers.

Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.

In its 18th season, the Ballet Theatre of Ohio stages full-length classical ballet starring both youth and adult dancers. Pre-show melodies will billow from the Akron Civic Theatre’s "Mighty Wurlitzer" organ, which rises from beneath the stage like an undead piano to serenade settling guests with festive holiday music. Along with the spectacle of the performance, bask in the magnificence of the historic theater itself, whose interior was designed to resemble a Moorish castle interior. European antiques, Italian sculptures, and a ceiling set with drifting clouds and twinkling star lights craft an atmosphere ready to boil over with holiday magic.
