Holiday Pops For All Ages With San Antonio Symphony & Children's Chorus

There are three chances to go to Holiday Pops and hear seasonal favorites with Akiko Fujimoto and the San Antonio Symphony featuring guest vocalists Cristal Smith, Eric Schmidt, and the Children's Chorus of San Antonio this weekend.

The first two concerts are at the Majestic Theatre and include holiday classics by Leroy Anderson, Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and John Rutter.

Sunday afternoon, a shorter concert geared for children is at Laurie Auditorium, celebrating the wintry cheer of Christmas and other yuletide holidays. Be sure to arrive early for musical crafts and games, such as the "Name (and Sing) that Holiday Carol" game.
