Enjoy the sounds of the holidays

The Holidays are a time for holiday music and that is exactly what the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra will present in its annual Christmas Concert at
7 p.m. Dec. 10 in the Crossroads Bible Church.
The program will include standard favorites such as, “White Christmas,” “Sheep May Safely Graze,” and “Sleigh Ride.”
A special treat, and one that has all the orchestra members smiling, is “Westward Ho Ho Ho!,” with a “Tip of the Stetson to Messrs. E. Bernstein and D. Gillis,” written by local composer and orchestra member, Ted Vives.
In this work the violins become fiddles and the trumpets mimic the neighing of sleigh horses.
This concert will involve some audience participation as well. There will be a free raffle drawing in which anyone can enter.
The winner of the raffle will get to conduct the orchestra in a familiar holiday tune. Experience is not necessary because conductor Michael Gyurik will be on hand to give instruction and advice.
In addition, the orchestra will accompany the audience in a sing-along of favorite carols.
The orchestra is made up of musicians from Los Alamos and Santa Fe who come from all walks of life, including retirees and students.
These musicians hope the audience will enjoy listening to it as much as enjoy performing it.
