The Las Vegas Philharmonic pipes torrents of audience-focused tunefulness into the desert with the help of conductor David Itkin, praised by the Las Vegas Review-Journal for “his ability to guide the orchestra’s contribution to the community.” This holiday season, the masterful ensemble continues its upbeat Pops series, inflating the grand Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall with a lineup of Christmas and Hanukkah melodies that form a fonder tradition than annual family eggnog-chugging contests. Backed by the orchestra’s lush harmonies and the soaring sounds of the Las Vegas Master Singers, singer Kristen Hertzenberg from Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular lends her gold-plated vocal cords to the performance, and Jersey Boys star Travis Cloer channels his time spent on Broadway to charm listeners and hail postshow cabs with dazzling grace.
