Knowledge, insightful and entertaining are compliments we have heard when speaking of U. of D. Professor, Gregory Sumner, our resident movie maven. The holiday concert has assumed a theatrical atmosphere with the input from Greg.

Great movies without great musical scores are hard to imagine. Professor Sumner sets the stage for us by explaining the plot and history of a number of holiday movies, and then famous portions are projected over the orchestra. The MSO concludes each portion by playing "live" the music that helped make the movie great. Nutcracker excerpts will also be performed featuring members of the Macomb Ballet.

If you have holiday shopping to do, don't forget to stop by the MSO holiday boutique before the start of the concert and during intermission.

The afternoon will conclude with a visit from Santa, bringing treats for the boys and girls and a traditional carol sing-along for all.
