Holiday Pops

The Ashland Symphony Orchestra performs its Holiday Pops concert in 2017.

ASHLAND -- The Ashland Symphony Orchestra will present Family Holiday Pops, Sunday, Nov. 28, at 3 and 7:30 p.m. at the Robert M. and Janet L. Archer Auditorium. John Deliman is the guest conductor.

These concerts feature traditional and holiday favorites including Sleigh Ride, excerpts from The Nutcracker, and music from Frozen. Also on the program is the Ashland premiere of A Winter Miracle; this arrangement, by Tim Berens of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, blends Vivaldi's Winter with O Hanukkah.

Deliman has served on the conducting staff of the MasterWorks Festival, and served as music director and conductor of the Columbus Symphony Cadet Orchestra (one of four Columbus Symphony youth orchestras). He has guest conducted honors and regional orchestras in Nebraska, Tennessee, and Ohio, and has conducted educational and summer concerts for the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra.

Please note that Deliman is not one of the candidates for the position of Music Director/Conductor of the ASO.

This program is presented without intermission.

In addition to the 3 and 7:30 p.m. in-person performances, this program will be available to stream on demand from Dec. 3 to Jan. 1, 2022.
