Symphony Holiday Gospel Spectacular

December 7, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 pm

Celebrate the holidays with timeless holiday classics performed by the orchestra, plus stirring renditions of seasonal gospel favourites that will have you clapping, stomping, and shouting “Hallelujah!” We’re assembling amazing gospel talent with powerhouse performances to move you, regardless of how you mark the holidays.
