Wizards of Winter, December 13
Head over to the Fox Tucson Theatre this week for a holiday rock event your whole family will love. “Tales Beneath a Northern Star” is a search inside a snow globe for the true meaning of Christmas, based around the musical intensity of the Wizards of Winter, and drawing inspiration from their self-titled CD. Join former members of some of the best Classic Rock bands such as The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rainbow, Alice Cooper, The Irish Tenors, and many more, in this performance of amazing vocal harmonies, string instrumentation, keyboard work, and powerful percussion. They’ll also be joined by Broadway veterans you don’t want to miss, so catch them when their American tour stops in Tucson.
A Christmas Carol, December 14-16
No Christmas would be complete without the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Join the Arts Express for the third annual A Christmas Carol & Dickens Festival at the Berger Performing Arts Center. You’ll experience the magic of Christmas with this musical theatre production, performed by a brilliant cast and accompanied by a live orchestra.
Two hours before each show, you can explore the Dickens Festival. Check out the merry streets of old London, watch Victorian era characters roam the streets, meet merchants, listen to carolers, and try some delicious treats.
Messiah, December 15 – 16
If you’re a classical music lover, you don’t want to miss this year’s performance of Handel’s Messiah. Join talented soloists, the Tucson Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra in this soaring masterpiece that remains one of classical music’s most popular works. It’s being held at one of Arizona’s most outstanding acoustical venues, the Catalina Foothills High School. Last year’s performance sold out, so get your tickets right away!
In the Christmas Mood: A Holiday Music Spectacular, December 21
If you miss the good old days of variety specials, head over to the Fox Tucson Theatre for a celebration of Christmas. In the spirit of TV Christmas specials from the 70s, where the whole family would gather around to hear holiday songs, this year’s Holiday Music Spectacular will get you in the holiday spirit. The evening will feature Crystal Stark, Brian Levario, Greg Curtis and Mrs. G from the 94.9 MIX-FM Morning Mix, and the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus. You’ll hear classic songs like “Jingle Bells” “Sleigh Ride” “Happy Holidays” and many more.
