The free concert will be lead by conductor Mic Harper in the Dogwood Theatre at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. Harper says, “The musicality of our local musicians is really quite astonishing. It is an honor and pleasure to work with them and to present this concert.” The concert includes the seasonal favorite, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” and other classical pieces. “This repertoire provides a wonderful introduction to orchestral music for children and also is complex enough to satisfy the seasoned classical ear,” says Harper.
