The Holidays Are Here! Candlelight Concert Tickets Available Tomorrow.

Last year’s 75th Candlelight Concert celebration was classic — a warm, wonderful mix of voices, instruments, tradition, reverence, fun and joy that captivated audiences from near and far.

So what can Staples High School’s music department do for an encore?

They’ll reach for the brass ring again with their 76th.

This year’s Candlelight Concert — featuring the symphonic orchestra, concert band and 3 vocal ensembles — includes longtime favorites like the “Sing We Noel” processional, excerpts from the “Nutcracker Suite,” “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” and the rousing “Hallelujah Chorus” finale, along with exciting new additions.

    No luck ordering tickets online tonight. Only available for families of performers. I’ll go back on tomorrow and hopefully general admission tickets will be available. I will order three for Friday night, Dec. 16th for Kaye, Anne, and moi.

    Oh! Just realized – it’s still the 16th. Long day, I guess. I’ll order tickets tomorrow. xox Donna >
