'Twas the Night Before Christmas

The Houston Symphony pairs music with poetry

Sing-alongs, while generally anathema to the general adult public, are one of the greatest things ever to happen to little kids. And, yes, there will be sing-alongs during today’s musical retelling of Clement Clarke Moore’s poem “‘Twas the Night before Christmas.” The program features the Houston Symphony, accompanied by the chorus from the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. Conductor Michael Krajewski will lead the ensemble (and the crowd) from “the stockings being hung by the chimney with care,” to the “miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer” to the part no one can ever remember about the “down of a thistle.”

Pre- and post-show activities in the lobby should exhaust the Christmas spirit for the day -— but don’t blame us if you hear endless choruses of “On Comet!” and “On Cupid!” during the ride home. 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houston-symphony.org. $15 to $20.
Sat., Dec. 8, 10 & 11:30 a.m., 2007
