The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra invites you to join us for two dazzling Holiday Concerts on Saturday December 10th at 7:30 pm, and Sunday December 11th at 3:00 pm. Both concerts will be held at the Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium in Meredith. These much-anticipated holiday extravaganzas sell out quickly so get your tickets early.
This year’s program features brand new selections including “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, “A Mad Russian’s Christmas” by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and some timeless LRSO favorites including “Jingle Bells Forever” and a holiday sing-along. Come one come all – enjoy the sounds of the season!
This season’s holiday concerts feature guest vocalist Karen Jordan. Karen is a renowned singer from Laconia versed in many styles from opera to musical theater to jazz. Karen’s career has included professional classical and musical theater performance, teaching, and directing. Early performance years included soloist for the NH Music Festival, Ithaca Chamber Singers, as well as featured guest artist with several summer stock musical theaters and community theaters across New England.
She has played leading roles in Into the Woods, Oklahoma, and Camelot to name a few. Some of her musical directing experience includes musical productions with Streetcar Company, Pittsfield Players, Bedford Youth Performing Company, Laconia High School, and Inter Lakes High School.
Most recently she was the Choral Director at Inter-Lakes High School and presently is the director of the Lakes Region Singers, the Lakes Region Youth Chorus, Wesley Choir at First United Methodist Church in Gilford, NH, and founding director of The Lakes Region Music and Arts Camp. Mrs. Jordan also teaches at her studio in Laconia.
Karen is the founder, director, and soprano of the jazz quartet “Swell Party” who performed throughout New England, with two CD’s – “Wishing You a Swell Christmas” and “High Standards” – to their credit.
“There’s something very special about holiday songs performed live like this – sometimes there are no words to describe the effect of a large orchestra playing songs that we’ve all known since childhood,” says Benjamin Greene, LRSO’s conductor and music director. “It’s heartwarming and fun to listen to arrangements you just can’t hear on the radio during the holiday season.”
Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children and students college-age and under. Tickets are available online at WWW.LRSO.ORG/TICKETS, by mail using the form on that web page, or from these ticket outlets: Innisfree Bookshop and the Mobil station across from the town docks in Meredith; Greenlaw’s Music in Laconia; and Bayswater Books in Center Harbor. Any unsold tickets will be available at the door starting one hour before each concert.
The LRSO greatly appreciates the support of its Saturday concert sponsor Bellwether Credit Union, and its Sunday concert sponsor Fay’s Boat Yard. Their generous community support is a big part of what makes the LRSO, a community orchestra, possible.
