(Media release from the Rome Symphony Orchestra):
The Rome Symphony Orchestra has announced the date for their holiday-themed concert, A Dickens’ Christmas on Broad. At this performance, set for Sunday, December 19th at 5 p.m., audience members will enjoy Christmas classics at the Rome City Auditorium on historic downtown Broad Street.
To create a true Dickensian atmosphere, the symphony plans to go beyond orchestral music and incorporate interactive holiday elements into the performance. In addition to the holiday musical classics audience members will expect, Maestro Jeffrey Dokken will incorporate costumed carolers and dramatic seasonal readings from the period. “Nothing evokes thoughts and feelings of Christmas more than Charles Dickens and the Victorian Era,” Maestro Dokken said. “Our costumed carolers, seasonal readings, and musical selections will sweep the entire family away to a bygone era of Christmas magic and will help you take that spark back with you to your family holiday celebrations.”
To allow for a true family-oriented holiday event, the symphony has set the performance for Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. “Many families will be gathering to spend time together for the holidays and what a perfect way to set the tone for a wonderful holiday season and create memories with family and friends,” said RSO Board President, Liz Tierney. “We encourage parents and grandparents to bring their little ones (and teenagers too!) to this fun concert.”
Tickets for the performance are available online at www.romesymphony.org, at the concert on the evening of the performance, and at both locations of the Georgia’s Rome Gift Shop and Welcome Centers (cash or check only) located at Jackson Hill and Downtown on Tribune Street.
