The Kamloops Symphony will hold its annual Christmas with the KSO concert at the Sagebrush Theatre on Dec. 17 and Dec. 18.
Three shows will be held over two days, including a 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. show on Saturday and a 2 p.m. show on Sunday.
The symphony says the festive show will be lively and joyous, featuring harp soloist Naomi Cloutier and the KSO Chorus led by guest conductor Antonio Delgado.
Delgado, born in Caracas, Venezuela, is a conductor of the world renowned National System of Youth and Children's Orchestras of Venezuela and Delgado has conducted every major orchestra in that country. He's also been invited to conduct in Italy, Cuba, Guatemala and Panama and, since 2010, has been the musical director and conductor of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra.
Delgado will lead the KSO Chorus through Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols for choir and harp, as well as selections from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker and from Handel's Messiah.
