Woodbury-based East Metro Symphony Orchestra (EMSO), in collaboration with Applause Community Theatre (ACT), is pleased to present Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas!, a musical concert featuring excerpts from the play by David Caldwell and Ernest Zulia. The performance will be held Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 2499 Helen Street North, North St. Paul, MN. Admission to this concert is free. Donations in support of the orchestra’s work in the community are always appreciated.
This is the first time EMSO and ACT have partnered to present a collaborative program featuring both music and storytelling. Based on the book by Robert Fulghum, Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas! is a series of vignettes about the joys and turmoil of the holiday season. This special performance will feature EMSO presenting a collection of favorite holiday carols, led by EMSO’s new music director and conductor Craig Hara, alongside ACT performing excerpts from the play, directed by Gary Davis. A meet-and-greet with orchestra members and refreshments will immediately follow the performance.
Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas is the second concert in EMSO’s 2019-2020 New Beginnings concert season. For more concert or season information, visit EMSO’s website at www.emsorch.org.
