The Pasadena Symphony’s annual Holiday Candlelight concert returns to All Saints Church on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

Having sold out for the past seven years, the symphony will offer two performances to meet community demand at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The architecturally exquisite and acoustically sonorous All Saints Church, Pasadena’s equivalent of a European cathedral, provides the perfect setting to hear your holiday favorites – all performed by candlelight. Audiences are going to love each and every moment of this cherished holiday tradition.

New this year, Pasadena Symphony Music Director David Lockington will take the rostrum as Conductor, leading an array of choruses including the Los Angeles Children’s

A true triple-threat, the Tony-nominated actor, dancer and singer has appeared on Broadway and the West End in Fosse, West Side Story and Chicago among others and has numerous television credits under her belt including The Blacklist, Blackish, True Blood and Treme.

This year’s program has something for everyone to ring in the holiday season, from traditional holiday classics to popular standards. Hear Carol of the Bells, Baby It’s Cold Outside, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Hallelujah! and many more favorites. The venue will again offer fully assigned individual seating throughout All Saints’ glorious interior, ensuring that the audience can enjoy their experience with ease and have a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of the season. Top off your holidays with lasting memories for the whole family at this time-honored tradition.
