Candy Cane: Spirit of the Holidays
For this holiday season, The Lexington Philharmonic hitches their stage to Santa’s sleigh and embarks on a whirlwind tour of musical traditions from around the world. Guided by LEX 18’s Bill Meck, the concert visits Ireland, where the McTaggert Irish Dancers high-step through Celtic carols, before prepping its passport for a performance by UK Steel Drums and Percussion. Closer to home, the Bluegrass Youth Ballet pirouettes through the Land of Sweets during selections from The Nutcracker. But the concert isn’t just limited to holiday traditions in this world—it also visits the world of Disney, as songs from Frozen ensure everyone has something to sing in the car on the way home.
The Lexington Philharmonic
In 1961, the University of Kentucky's Department of Agriculture needed background music for a film it was producing. Roughly 65 musicians volunteered, including students and faculty from surrounding universities. Fast-forward four years and this motley crew became The Lexington Philharmonic. Central Kentucky's largest arts organization, LexPhil has since performed more than 100 concerts annually, bringing orchestral music into schools and concert venues alike to inspire citizens and bring music to the masses.
