The Marquette Symphony Orchestra warmly invites the community to
celebrate the winter season with beautiful selections of holiday
music. New for the 2011 season, the Marquette Symphony Orchestra and
Conductor Dr. Jacob Chi will present two concerts on Saturday,
December 17, 2011: a matinee family concert at 2:00 p.m. and the full
“Sounds of the Holidays” season concert at 7:30 p.m.
The 2:00 p.m. matinee will feature highlights from the full concert
specially selected for a younger audience. This concert is intended to
accommodate shorter attention spans and the selections featured will
be family favorites. Ticket prices for the matinee are $12.00 for
adults, $8.00 for students and $4.00 for children 12 and under.
The 7:30 p.m. full concert will feature a variety of works including

the Movies” arranged by Bob Krogstad, “Hanukkah Festival Overture”
arranged by Lucas Richman, “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson and many
more. The 7:30 p.m. concert will also feature special guest narration.
All concert attendees are invited to an afterglow celebration
following the 7:30 p.m. concert at Sweetwater Cafe. Ticket prices for
the evening concert are $27.00 for adults, $12.00 for students and
