Candy Cane: Spirit of the Holidays
The Lexington Philharmonic is set to play some holiday favorites, but just as their bows hit the strings, two mischievous holiday spirits from the Magic Circle Mime Co. stop the show. They have their own ideas for a holiday performance, which don't necessarily line up with the orchestra's, or, for that matter, each other's. Cutting through the squabbling comes the "Spirit of Music," who stokes the audience into a sing-along that chases away the "Curse of Noise." With curses gone, holiday spirit returns to the concert hall, readying audiences to decorate their homes and build a snowman big enough to hold all of Lexington’s holiday cheer.
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.
