NC Symphony: Holiday Pops 

When: Fri., Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 26, 3 p.m. 2016
Price: $20-$75

The rapid approach of December means a few things: Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" begins its annual two-month saturation of the airwaves; stores get bedazzled in red and green, and orchestras pull out Handel's Messiah and holiday pops programs. This year's entry by the North Carolina Symphony has a decidedly cinematic flavor, with tunes from How the Grinch Stole ChristmasHome AloneBabes in Toyland, and of course, Disney's Frozen. The show will also include some old standbys—"Silver Bells," "Sleigh Ride," and "The Twelve Days of Christmas"—and a sing-along, plus appearances by the Raleigh Boychoir, Triangle Youth Ballet, even Santa. There can be a numbing sameness to holiday cultural offerings too heavily focused on baby boomer nostalgia, so it's a welcome change to see the symphony trying to reflect a little of the twenty-first century. —Dan Ruccia
