The Saginaw Choral Society presents their 2016-2017 season holiday concert “A Michigan Christmas” on Saturday, December 10th at 3:00pm at the Temple Theatre. The SCS will be joined by siblings and Bay City natives, Katie & Matt Travis and the Bijou Orchestra. Songs will include: Brian D’arcy James’ “A Michigan Christmas,” Holst’s “Christmas Day,” three holiday songs from “Home Alone,” and other timeless holiday classics from Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” to a Charlie Brown Medley.
The Bijou Orchestra, was established in 2003 to be Bay County’s first professional performing organization and remains its only non-profit professional institution. The brain child of the late Leo Najar, he wanted an ensemble unique in the Great Lakes Bay Regions so that the Bay Area community would have an individual artistic identity that would contribute to community self-esteem, enhance educational opportunities in the arts for people of all ages, and support cultural tourism in Bay County. The thirteen-piece Bijou is modeled on the orchestras found in American theaters in the first part of the 20th century and is the only ensemble of its kind in the country producing a regular concert series.
Tickets for A Michigan Christmas may be purchased via the Temple Theatre online or by calling 989-754-SHOW.
