Our Annual Christmas Concert Returns – Live on Stage
Our Holiday Concert this year features a jazzy collection of traditional classics, popular favorites — and a few surprises you'll love.
Instead of the usual traditional arrangements of your holiday favorites, Redlands Symphony is doing things differently.
Enjoy Swingin' Carols and Standards
We have put together a program of beloved Christmas songs but in 1940s big band swing arrangements. All your favorites are here, like Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire, White Christmas, Sleigh Ride, Let It Snow, and many, many more.
The swing arrangements are fantastic, including classics by Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and Count Basie.
Meet Jazz Legends & Rising Stars
To add even more excitement, we are joined by award-winning "Jazz at Lincoln Center" vocalist Alexis Morrast.
The whole evening will be introduced and led by our own local jazz legend, Marshall Hawkins.
We hope you'll join us for a swinging evening on December 11th at Memorial Chapel.
On every concert night, you will notice changes designed to keep everyone safe, secure, and comfortable during your evening at the symphony. Learn about our safety improvements.
The performance of Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' was just amazing. The cast, chorus, and orchestra moved me to tears.
Thank you for this marvelous production, which might just have been the best event from the Redlands Symphony in the 13 years I have been a season subscriber.
