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

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.

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.
