Mantovani Orchestra and Chorus photoMILWAUKEE – Christmas with the Mantovani Orchestra and Chorus will take the stage on Friday and Saturday, December 14 and 15, at Wisconsin Lutheran College. The performance begins at 8 p.m. in the Schwan Concert Hall.

Christmas with the Mantovani Orchestra and Chorus presents a traditional Christmas extravaganza with music whose melodies are made special by the indelible stamp of Maestro’s cascading strings and the talented group of vocalists singing your favorite Christmas songs. Like Santa’s workshop, Mantovani’s Christmas concerts are rich in the size and variety of their offerings: big and dramatic with ballet selections by Tchaikovsky, festive and fun with Santa’s Sleigh Ride, devotional with O Holy Night, and humorous with March of the Toys.
