Back by popular demand, the multi-talented Bramwell Tovey (he's a Grammy-winning conductor, composer, pianist, and narrator) is coming to town, full of holiday merriment. From favorite traditional carols to Tovey's own artistic offerings, like his original "Rittenhouse Carol," our Glorious Sound of Christmas concerts are guaranteed to get you in the spirit of the season. At the heart? "The core of it all is the humanity of the players," says Tovey. He's thrilled to be a part of the Philadelphians' "exalted" music-making... and you will be too!
