Bramwell Tovey to Conduct Fun New Year's Eve Concert

“… please borrow, steal and BEG BEG Bramwell Tovey to come back next year … what a treat….”

That’s what Orchestra Facebook fan John Samerjan wrote after Tovey led three Glorious Sound of Christmas concerts last year. 

We heard the pleas, and Tovey, seen below conducting last year’s Christmas concert, gladly returns to conduct our New Year’s Eve concert, which begins at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, December 31.

The Holidays are Happening at the Orchestra

He may not have the cachet or reputation of one of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s legendary conductors, but you have to admit, Santa Claus has a style all his own.

See for yourself when he takes the baton during the Orchestra’s Glorious Sound of Christmas concerts Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Tickets are still available for the popular concerts, which are named for the Orchestra’s best-selling Christmas album.
