Steamboat Symphony Orchestra presents ‘Finding Christmas’

Kick off the holidays with this week's Steamboat Symphony Orchestra holiday concert "Finding Christmas."

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — This weekend, more than 100 local singers and instrumentalists will join their music together in welcoming the holiday season. Steamboat Symphony Orchestra’s “Finding Christmas” concert is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, and  3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, at Strings Music Pavilion.

This annual concert blends holiday classics, traditional orchestral pieces and sing-a-long carols, all led by maestro Ernest Richardson. The show encourages listeners to think about how and where one truly finds the spirit of Christmas.

The concert features a range of local groups and musicians.
