Put yourself in the mood for all things merry and bright by joining the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor and music director Adam Stern, for their traditional holiday "pops" program, Christmas in Sammamish and Bellevue. For more than two decades, the orchestra’s annual celebration of the holidays has been a tradition on the Eastside. This year’s program features a musical blend of holiday favorites, including Leroy Anderson’s lively and beautifully orchestrated medley A Christmas Festival (where you’re sure to recognize bits and pieces from Joy to the World, Deck the Halls, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Good King Wenceslas, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night, Jingle Bells and O Come, All Ye Faithful), some favorite symphonic works that just may have you rethinking your holiday playlist, and a few delightful surprises. Bring the whole family and enjoy an afternoon – or evening – of wonderful holiday music; you may even find yourself singing along!
