‘Tis the season for symphony.

Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) will celebrate the season with their annual holiday performances, set for Dec. 11 and 12 at Walton Arts Center.

SoNA will perform their annual Christmas Pops concert “A Very Son Christmas” at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11, followed by their annual family show “The Snowman: A Family Concert” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12.

“SoNA’s ever-popular Christmas concert is a tradition like none other, showcasing some of the finest talent in the region,” said SoNA Music Director Paul Haas said. “Northwest Arkansas is so much more than a collection of cities and towns – it really is an organic and beautiful coming together of people from all walks of life, and our Christmas concert mirrors that coming together with an extraordinary blend of traditional and pops programming.”

A Very SoNA Christmas includes a mix of sacred and secular holiday favorites, featuring the SoNA Singers under the direction of Terry Hicks.

The Snowman: A Family Concert features holiday music for children of all ages and a special screening of the award-winning film, The Snowman, with live orchestral accompaniment.

“All of us remember what it was like as a child to wish that our favorite toys or stuffed animals would come to life, in fact to believe they would!” Haas said. “This silent film — accompanied by an extraordinary score for virtuosic orchestra — brings that magical thought alive in a way that captivates both young and old alike.”

Tickets to A Very SoNA Christmas range from $35-$57, and tickets for The Snowman: A Family Concert are $10.
