Renowned soprano Sarah Coburn and daughter Ruby, beloved News On 6’s LeAnne Taylor, and other special guests will perform with a variety of vacation favorites in this heartwarming program. Guest conductor Ron Spigelman will lead the TSO in Sleigh Ride, O’Holy Night, Snowflake, Hanukkah Overture and more. There will also be a very special visit from Santa Claus! The performance will be directed by Bob Comiskey, who received two NE NATAS Emmy Award nominations for directing and special events for his work with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

This program will lift their spirits, spark pride in the community, and bring families together with a festive production featuring local musicians and performers.

Keith C. Elder, Executive Director of the Tulsa Symphony, said, “We look forward to bringing this uplifting vacation special to the Tulsa community at a time when big live concerts are not an option.
