Holiday and Christmas concerts have always been a staple of the most merry time of year. Popular acts like Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mannheim Steamroller have been putting their own spin on traditional Christmas standards for many years, and each show has two concurrent tours in November and December of each year.
In addition, there are a litany of local jingle ball concerts sponsored by radio stations, as well as specially-themed shows performed by city-based pops and symphony orchestras. If you're looking for live musical entertainment during the holiday season, there are plenty of options!
The 2013 holiday season is over now, but the 2014 holiday season will be here before we know it! Check back later this year to get tickets for popular holiday-themed theater shows. In the meantime, see below for a list of major annual holiday concerts.
