LCSA Christmas Concert goes virtual this year

This story has been updated with new dates for the concert’s streaming and availability.

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Lake County Symphony Association is still going strong — despite the challenges of COVID-19 — and will present its Christmas Concert as a virtual event, like their recent Fall Concert.

This is somewhat disappointing, since audience participation — the popular “singalong” component — will not be possible in this format. But almost everything else that people enjoyed at the live Christmas Concert is included in this version that was filmed at the Soper Reese Theatre.

John Parkinson conducts the Lake County Symphony Chamber Orchestra (complete with rhythm section, guitar, Irish penny whistle and Bodhran drum) in orchestral holiday favorites: “Sleigh Ride,” “Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Fum Fum Fum,” “Highland Holiday,” “Christmas Boogie” and more.

Jude Darrin is the featured soloist vocalist once again and will be singing custom arranged selections. The concert premieres at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 24, on the Soper Reese Theatre YouTube Channel.

Tickets may be purchased on the Soper Reese website: www.Soperreesetheatre.com. Simply purchase a “Ticket Reservation” and the actual link to the premier will be emailed to you on Dec. 23 after the concert is uploaded.

You may also purchase a Link to view the celebration “On Demand” and enjoy viewing it anytime between Dec. 25 and Jan. 2.

On Jan. 3 the celebration will be available for free viewing on both the Soper Reese YouTube Channel called: “Soper Reese YouTube” and the Lake County Symphony YouTube Channel called: “LC Symphony Musicians.”

For those who missed the LCSA virtual Fall Concert, headlined by Camm Linden playing Haydn’s Piano Concerto, head on over to LC Symphony Musicians on YouTube to view for free.
