Seasonal Favorites to Highlight West Hartford Symphony Holiday Concert

The West Hartford Symphony Orchestra will present its 2017 Holiday Concert on Sunday, Dec. 10.


The West Hartford Symphony Orchestra (WHSO), under the direction of musical director Richard Chiarappa, will perform its annual Holiday Concert on Sunday, Dec. 10, beginning at 3 p.m., at West Hartford Town Hall.

The orchestra will play seasonal favorites such as Leroy Anderson’s “Christmas Festival” and his beloved “Sleigh Ride,” as well as Mel Tormey’s “Chestnuts,” Robert Wendel’s “Hanukah Festival,” and Mannheim Steamroller’s “Stille Nacht” –  which are all sure to delight!

Returning to perform with WHSO is soprano soloist Timatha Kasten who will captivate the audience with her vocal talent and bright personality. She will perform “Ave Maria,” “White Christmas,” and “Sancta Maria” from Andrea Bocelli’s Sacred Arias album.

Kasten, whose credits include headlining as a celebrity impersonator for the casino show “Legends in Concert,” performing worldwide for “Cavalcade of Stars,” and performing with the USO, said that returning as a soloist with the West Hartford Symphony Orchestra is one of the highlights of her life – as was her first time singing with WHSO. “A very special thank you to Maestro Richard Chiarappa and his extraordinary musicians for this wonderful Christmas gift,” she said.

Tickets are available by calling 860-521-4362 or online from the website whso.org. General seating is $20, senior/student tickets are $15, and premium table seating is $30. Tickets will also be available at the door, which opens at 2:15 p.m.
