Diablo Symphony Presents Musical Stories for the Holidays with Susan Strauss and WomenSing

Presented by Diablo Symphony Orchestra

Diablo Symphony Holiday Concert December 2

The Diablo Symphony joins forces with master storyteller Susan Strauss and local choir WomenSing on Saturday, December 2, for a joyous holiday celebration geared for all ages. Beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Walnut Creek Presbyterian Church, the program includes two movements from Tchaikovsky’s fantasy-like Symphony No. 1 ( “Winter Dreams”) as well as the new commissioned work “Winter Stories” by composer Chris Castro, with narration by Susan Strauss. A series of holiday songs by WomenSing (known for its vibrant and beautifully blended sound) and holiday orchestral favorites — from “Hannukah Overture” to “Sleigh Ride” — will delight all.
