On Saturday, Dec. 15 and Sunday, Dec. 16, the Elgin Symphony Orchestra will present “Let It Snow!”
The magical holiday concert will feature favorites like “Carol of the Bells,” “O Holy Night” and portions of the “Nutcracker.”
There will even be a sing-along of family favorites ending with “Silent Night.”
The family friendly event will include a photographer in the lobby for family photos, festive balloon sculptures, holiday decorations, and a surprise visit from the North Pole!
