“Winter Wonderland” begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, in the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall of the NIU Music Building.

The traditional family concert will feature many holiday favorites, including Haydn’s “Toy Symphony” and a seasonal sing-along. This performance is sponsored in part by the George and Betty Dutton Foundation.

The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra is a non-profit community orchestra which provides a place for professional, student and dedicated amateur musicians to use their talents in an orchestral setting

It began informally in 1976 and now engages in weekly rehearsals and an annual series of concerts. At times, its programs are enhanced by including guest conductors and soloists from the region and beyond.

The orchestra’s plans and policies are established by the Music Director Linc Smelser and the board of directors, which is composed of citizens from the community. WNIU and WNIJ are sponsors.

Tickets go on sale 30 minutes prior to the concert. All seats are general admission (no reserved seating). Tickets prices are $15 for adults, $10 for students and seniors 62 and older and $5 for children younger than 12.
