Celebrating its 25th anniversary of pumping out euphonic excellence, the California Symphony presents dazzling interpretations of classical pieces and modern works. This holiday season, the ensemble metes out well-tuned measures of Yuletide cheer during its Holiday Pops Spectacular. Conductor Michael Berkowitz pilots the talent-packed collection of musicians, who bound gracefully from note to note across adored seasonal classics and lead the audience through sing-alongs more inspirational than a rap battle between warm-hearted Whos. Groupon customers can continue the festivities by caroling car to car in the parking lot or by enjoying a cool or warm beverage and 10% off French-inflected fare at Cypress.
