It just wouldn’t be the holiday season without the Cleveland Pops Orchestra coming to Avon Lake.
The Avon/Avon Lake Rotary Club is sponsoring “Joy to the World,” a holiday concert performance by the Pops featuring the Avon Lake High School Chorale at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Daniel B. Ross, Ph.D. Performing Arts Center at Avon Lake High School.
The concert regularly draws a full house, with about 700 attending last year’s concert.
Last year, Rotary Club member Tom Brock said the students really look forward to this event every year.
“This is definitely a big-time platform for them,” said Brock, who is also co-chair of the event.
The concert will also raise money for the scholarship fund at Avon and Avon Lake high schools.
The Pops will be under the direction of Carl Topilow, its founder, who’s guest-conducted more than 90 orchestras around the world.
Tickets are $30 for adults ($35 at the door) and $15 for children 13 and under, and can be purchased at ALHS, Avon Lake Printing, Peter and Co. Jewelers, or from Rotary members. Credit card orders are welcome.
Tickets are $30 in advance ($15 for ages 13 and under) and $35 at the door.
