Evanston, IL &mdash Start your holiday season with An Evanston Symphony Christmas.    The Evanston Symphony Orchestra under Music Director Lawrence Eckerling will hold this annual Christmas Concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 9th at the Evanston Township High School auditorium.

 

The ESO is again joined by the acclaimed North Shore Choral Society (NSCS) and the Evanston Children&rsquo s Choir. All three groups will combine in John Williams&rsquo Three Holiday Songs, adapted from his score for the film Home Alone, andNSCS Music Director Julia Davids

This concert will be the largest indoor performance event in Evanston, featuring the 90 musicians of the Evanston Symphony, more than 120 singers from the North Shore Choral Society, the dancers of the Evanston Dance Ensemble and the children from the Evanston Children&rsquo s Choir.  Singers from the ETHS Concert Chorale, under the direction of Mary Theresa Reed, will entertain before the concert and at intermission.
