Celebrate the Holidays with Festive Carnegie Hall Concerts This December

Carnegie Hall is celebrating the holiday season with two special programs this December. On Friday, December 17 at 8:00 p.m. Tony Award winner Laura Benanti joins The New York Pops and Music Director Steven Reineke offering a festive program of traditional carols and contemporary classics including "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Winter Wonderland." Special guests on the program include Benanti's parents Linda Benanti and Martin Vidnovic as well as friends and collaborators Kate Mangiameli and Brandon Michael Nase.

The New York String Orchestra, an ensemble of remarkable young players from around the world who come together each December for a seminar of rehearsals and performance preparation, is conducted by Jaime Laredo for their annual Christmas Eve concert at Carnegie Hall. On Friday, December 24 at 7:00 p.m., the program features Elgar's Introduction and Allegro; Mozart's Divertimento in D Major, K. 136; Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings; and J. S. Bach's Violin Concerto in A Minor, BWV 1041 featuring Venezuelan violinist Rubén Rengel (a current fellow of Carnegie Hall's Ensemble Connect and winner of the Robert Frederick Smith Prize at the 2018 Sphinx Competition).
