ISO’s Yuletide Celebration

As the summer season draws to a close, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra excitedly looks ahead to one of our favorite times of the year – IPL Yuletide Celebration! Vocal powerhouse Angela Brown and 2014 winner of The Voice Josh Kaufman are joining the ISO and friends for this annual holiday tradition.

About the show

Broadway’s best singers and dancers will bring the Yuletide magic and music to life on the historic Hilbert Circle Theatre stage. Enjoy the traditions of “’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” the famous tap-dancing Santas, and “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” This year also features “Holly Jolly Dollies,” “Jingle Belles and Beaux,” and Angela Brown’s transcendent performance of “Mary Had a Baby.” You do not want to miss Josh Kaufman in a new 2018 edition of the North Pole reality singing competition, “Santa’s Choice!

New tradition added

A new act added to the lineup is announced today, as Indy’s own dance group Expressenz takes the Yuletide stage! When Expressenz competed in NBC’s World of Dance, judge Jennifer Lopez was blown away. She said, “It was so perfectly in sync with every emotion and moment that you tried to create. It really moved me. I had goosebumps from the beginning.”
