Franc D`Ambrosio's "Christmas in New York"

Saturday, December 15, 2018 | 7:30 PM

Last year’s Yuletide Celebration was a blockbuster. A full house greeted our special guest, the legendary Franc D’Ambrosio, as we presented the premiere of the orchestral and choral version of Franc D’Ambrosio’s Christmas in New York. Well … here are some tidings of great joy … Franc D’Ambrosio returns to reprise the show on December 15. Joined by the Tuscarawas Philharmonic Adult Chorus and Children’s Chorus, Franc takes us on a musical excursion around the Manhattan of his boyhood. It’s all of your favorite Christmas music packaged in a touching and humorous memoir delivered by a master performer with the Tuscarawas Philharmonic and Choruses.
