A Madison Symphony Christmas — Dec. 3, 4, 5

Beginning with caroling in the lobby, and the entire audience singing Christmas carols together for the finale, this beloved annual Madison tradition brings the holiday season to a glorious start! Embrace the spirit of the season with our orchestra, opera stars, and three choruses for a celebration sharing hope and joy with everyone who joins us. Please that we will adhere to all public health guidelines and cooperate with Overture Center for the Arts to assure your safety (measures currently include proof of vaccination, and wearing masks).
