The Michigan Philharmonic’s Yuletide celebration will take you on a musical sleigh ride around the world and back again for its Holiday Pops with the Phil at 6 and 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, at the Penn Theatre in beautiful downtown Plymouth. From Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and African Noel to a contemporary Hanukkah favorite, The Eighth Candle, the concert celebrates all the diverse sounds of the season, including fun tunes featuring the Grinch, Rudolph, and the Polar Express. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a perennial favorite: the Phil’s own mashup of Stars & Stripes and Jingle Bells along with a unique treat featuring timpanist Ray Riggs, who will perform a Concerto for Timpani and Strings and Leroy Anderson’s ever-playful The Typewriter. Enjoy an old-fashioned carol singalong culminating with the Hallelujah Chorus. For tickets and information, visit michiganphil.org.
