The Orlando Philharmonic Announces Lineup of Holiday Concerts for Remainder of 2020

The Orlando Philharmonic has announced a lineup of free and paid holiday concerts to close out the year, in multiple locations throughout Central Florida. This includes annual holiday performances, as well as the introduction of a new holiday series taking place at The Plaza Live.

"All of us at the Orlando Philharmonic are excited and proud to be offering this outstanding lineup of December programs," says Paul Helfrich, executive director of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. "I've loved Christmas music since I was a kid, and it always puts a smile on my face. In this time when we all could use some holiday cheer, I'm glad we can still play music in a safe and responsible way, taking advantage of our pleasant December weather and attractive outdoor venues. The holidays are all about traditions, and even in a year when so much is different, we're so happy to continue the tradition of sharing holiday music with our family and friends."

Below is the full lineup of upcoming Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra concerts for the remainder of 2020:
