“A Christmas in July Holiday Pops Concert” offers a wide range of holiday music from all generations. Attendees will be treated to orchestral favorites like A Mad Russian’s Christmas and Carol of the Bells, as well as Christmas classics like Let It Snow, White Christmas, and Sleigh Ride. In addition, attendees should be on the lookout for special holiday surprises, including a visit from Santa Claus, all the way from the North Pole!
The concert showcases the full orchestra, with conductor and music director Carl Topilow, who will also perform with his clarinet. Lending her voice to bring additional Christmas cheer to the event is guest vocalist Evelyn Wright, who has opened for the likes of Mel Torme, Joan Rivers, Harry Belafonte, Bob James, Freddie Jackson, and Regina Belle, among others. Wright will perform heartfelt ballads like Merry Christmas Baby and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
FSO’s executive director Tricia Applegate is ecstatic to continue the partnership with the Sandusky Parks Department to make live music available to local residents. “Since we were unable to perform our usual Holiday Pops concert due to the pandemic, we thought it would be great to make up for lost time and present a holiday concert on the pier for Christmas in July,” said Applegate.
Audience members are encouraged to bring their own blanket or chair to enjoy the concert. Tents will also be available for audience seating if needed. Free parking is available at many downtown lots, including the Jackson Street lot on the corner of Jackson Street and Market Street. Drop off is available at the pier for disabled persons.
