The Hollywood Concert Orchestra: A Viennese Christmas
The Hollywood Concert Orchestra regularly performs arrangements of high-profile themes from Broadway and the silver screen—often with equally glamorous guests such as Academy Award winner Shirley Jones. For this season, “The Orchestra of the Stars” uses its musical shimmer to welcome in the holiday spirit. Following a program that’s been touring for nearly two decades, conductor Steve Charpie waves his baton through holiday classics both old and new. From Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus overture—a traditional Christmas operetta that opened, surprisingly, on Easter Sunday in 1874—to “Little Drummer Boy” and “Silver Bells” sung by a vocal quartet, the selections vary wildly in age but have two things in common: hearty holiday cheer and the fact that none are just minutes of pure silence. True to the concert’s name, the program heavily features Vienna’s Johann Strauss II as well as his dad, touching on Vienna Bon Bons, Thunder and Lightning Polka, and the evening’s closer, Radetzky March.
Newberry Opera House
Evincing a history that dates back to 1881 and includes stints as a city jail and a silent-film palace, the 426-seat Newberry Opera House is a spectacle in itself. A recent multimillion-dollar renovation project modernized the institution's eclectic Victorian craftwork by adding state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and removing the horse-drawn curtain-raising system.
