About the Show

There’s no better way to begin the Christmas season than with a yuletide celebration of festive classics such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Polar Express, It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, and more. 

The Muncie Symphony Orchestra will be joined onstage by Ball State voice faculty and accomplished opera performers Jon and Elizabeth Truitt. The Youth Symphony Orchestra of East Central Indiana will also join the MSO for a side-by-side performance on several selections. On the second half of the program, the music will be brought to life as the orchestra performs along with the short film "The Snowman." 

Be sure to arrive early to get your picture taken with Santa in the lobby before the concert!
