Hear the puck drop, hockey sticks clash and the crowd cheer: it’s The Leafs vs The Habs, as this classic Canadian hockey rivalry plays out — in the concert hall.
Just in time for the holidays, Orchestra Kingston brings Dan Tremblay onstage to narrate Roch Carrier’s hilarious family favourite, “The Hockey Sweater” orchestrated by Abigail Richardson-Schulte, Sunday December 12th 2:30pm at The Spire, 82 Sydenham St, Kingston. Plus: Christmas carol sing-alongs for the whole family, and over an hour of musical fun during this “Christmas Cracker“ of a show.
Tickets: Free for kids (16 and under), $25 (adult), $20 (senior & student), at eventbright https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/orchestra-kingston-2023-holiday-concert-tickets-469665711787, Novel Idea, Arden Music, orchestra members, and at the door.
Also on the program, and because the best holiday memories are made together, the audience is invited to sing along with gusto as the orchestra plays favourite holiday carols such as, O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, The First Noel, O Come, O Come, and A Most Wonderful Christmas.
The concert wraps up with the warmth of holiday favourites including Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”, Anderson’s “Christmas Festival”, “Sleigh Ride”, and Prokofiev’s beloved fast winter journey, the Troika from “Lieutenant Kijé”.
