JMR, aka Mr. Christmas, brings his boundless energy to Western New York’s #1 Holiday tradition. The Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus joins this annual extravaganza along with local jazz singer Katy Miner, Girlchoir, and Normal Street Entrance  for all your holiday favorites, a few with a new twist.  This year’s concert centerpiece is The Polar Express, narrated by Mike Randall. This version combines the stunning illustrations from the book with the glorious orchestral score from the movie. It’s a story for all ages. Share the magic of the season with us!
