It’s Hartford’s favorite holiday concert tradition! The Hartford Symphony Orchestra will combine jaw-dropping acrobatics and joyful music at Holiday Cirque Spectacular on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. in Mortensen Hall at The Bushnell in Hartford. Holiday Cirque Spectacular is part of the 2017-18 POPS! Series, sponsored by United Technologies. Concert sponsors are Prudential and Harvey and Lewis Opticians.

Conducted by HSO Music Director Carolyn Kuan, this ultimate holiday extravaganza will include such favorites as Deck the Halls, Rocket Sleigh, selections from The Nutcracker, Sleigh Ride, and many more – as well as a holly jolly singalong! Of course, our holiday program wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

All of this magical music performed by the HSO will be set to astonishing acrobatic feats by members of the renowned Cirque de la Symphonie! The performers of Cirque de la Symphonie are some of the most accomplished veterans of exceptional cirque programs from across the globe. They include world record holders, gold-medal winners of international competitions, Olympians and some of the most original talent ever seen. Watch these amazing aerialists, contortionists, and gymnasts tumble, soar and dance on and above the stage all while the HSO plays your festive favorites.

This holiday season, The Bushnell and The Hartford Symphony Orchestra will be hosting a toy drive to benefit the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Please consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy to drop off in the boxes located throughout The Bushnell lobbies.
