On Saturday, December 15, the Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) Holiday POPS! concert celebrates the season with the Princeton High School Choir at 3 and 6 p.m. performances led by Music Director Rossen Milanov at Richardson Auditorium on Princeton University Campus. The festive program includes John Debney’s suite from the movie Elf, Jerry Herman’s “We Need a Little Christmas” from Mame (sung by choir member Danielle Danis), Felix Mendelssohn’s Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, a waltz by Johann Strauss Jr., and more. Of course, everyone is invited to join in as Maestro Milanov leads the carol sing-along!
PSO Executive Director Marc Uys says, “Nothing evokes the spirit of the holidays more than the rich sound of a live orchestra performing treasured melodies of the season. It’s why so many families make the PSO’s Holiday POPS! concert a regular part of their festivities.”
The Princeton High School Choir has an unusually rich tradition of choral excellence that is unique among American high schools, performing extensively in North America and Europe and touring as representatives of Princeton, New Jersey. One of five performing ensembles, the 96 members of the choir are selected after careful audition of nearly two hundred and fifty voices in the high school’s choral program.
