Storm Large & featuring Patrick Godon on the piano
The CSO’s holiday tradition, MERRY, MERRY CHICAGO! returns for its fourth year at Symphony Center with a celebration of holiday music. This year’s festive program is offered in seven performances, December 14 to 23. The program features Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra along with narrator David Lively narrating “Twas The Night Before Christmas” and the Young Naperville Singers led by guest conductor Michael Krajewski. Special guest vocalist Storm Large is featured in treasured carols such as “The Christmas Song” and “Joy to the World,” as well as her own self-penned songs “Hotel Christmas” and “Stand Up for Me.” Other program highlights include Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing the lilting Farandole and selections from Respighi’s whimsical suite La Boutique fantasque (The Fantastic Toy Shop), as well as a visit by a very special guest from the North Pole.
