Ring in the holiday with a heartwarming celebration that features the sounds of the season in The Pavilion’s magically transformed Winter Wonderland! The Houston Symphony performs a new holiday concert, Holly Jolly Pops, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The evening’s musical holiday merriment is a FREE event thanks to the generous support of Macy’s, St. Luke’s Community Medical Center – The Woodlands and Woodforest National Bank. The event also is sponsored in part by Fidelity Investments. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. All seating is general admission.

Rapidly developing a reputation as an energetic and imaginative young conductor, the delightful Rebecca Miller leads the Houston Symphony in some well-known holiday classics and popular carols. The evening also features Mozart’s “Musical Sleigh Ride,” a sing-a-long, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and more!

The evening also features Bassist Kevin Deas. Deas gained international acclaim as one of America’s leading basses. He is celebrated for his riveting portrayal of the title role in Porgy and Bess which he performed with New York Philharmonic, National Symphony, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco, Atlanta, San Diego, Houston and Montreal symphonies and at the Ravinia and Sarratoga festivals.
