A Night At The Symphony

On Friday night Daryl and I got to attend a Holiday Concert at The Sharon Performing Arts Center in The Villages. A church family gifted us with tickets for the evening to the Philharmonic Orchestra's Christmas Concert. It was our first time at The Sharon and it was wonderful. We had amazing seats too - 2nd row center orchestra.  

The music was a beautiful blend of classical Christmas (Agnus Dei, Ave Maria, Gesu Bambino), popular Christmas songs (Sleigh Ride, Merry Christmas Darling, White Christmas) and songs from Christmas movies (Home Alone, Frozen, Polar Express and Jim Carrey's Christmas Carol). They finished up with O Holy Night and Silent Night. The orchestra also had a Chorale singing along and some featured vocalists on many songs. So well done and very enjoyable. There was no photography allowed during the performance, so the pictures below are from the local newspaper on their Facebook page.
