Start the holidays on the right note! One of Broadway’s brightest stars and most sought-after vocalists, Ashley Brown, joins MSO to present a colorful array of holiday favorites, as well as some well-known Disney classics. Best known for her critically acclaimed title role in the Broadway and touring smash hit Mary Poppins, Brown has also performed with virtually all the top American orchestras. The MSO Chorus and newly formed Modesto Symphony Youth Chorus join in on the celebration to leave listeners infused with holiday spirit.
Our annual community favorite returns to St. Stanislaus Catholic Church for an evening of warmth and cheer. Celebrate family, community and the beauty of chamber music while enjoying traditional hymns and carols performed by the MSO Chorus and the Modesto Symphony Youth Chorus, alongside the Opus Handbell Ensemble. This concert reminds listeners of the true meaning of the season and warms the soul just in time for the holiday. Last year’s performance was completely sold out, so get your tickets early!

It’s easy to fall in love while listening to this collection of passionate pieces from some of Russia’s greatest classical composers. Famed soloist Dylana Jenson returns to Modesto for a can’t miss – and MSO premier – performance of Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2. Perhaps one of his lesser-known pieces, Symphony No. 5 has been characterized as “classic Tchaikovsky”: well crafted, colorfully orchestrated and delightfully melodic. An overall spirit of triumph unifies this vibrant and festive program.
