Following in the footsteps of Arthur Fiedler and John Williams, Keith Lockhart leads the Pops in their annual holiday concert with traditional carols, festive modern classics, the Orchestra’s signature “Sleighride,” and the ever-popular audience sing-along. The concert features American Idol guest star Melinda Doolittle, singing holiday pops favorites, and an orchestrated narration of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” A special visit from St. Nick will complete this warm and wonderful evening of Christmas cheer.

A UConn Hoo-Skies Holiday Gala
and Grand Reopening Celebration


The Hoo-skies at UConn are planning a gala
To celebrate what, an updated new hall-a.
Oh the summer’s been busy with building galore,
They’ve been banging on walls and then drilling the floor
They’ve been grinding and painting, adding light to complete,
They’ve been making things right for new apple green seats!
Now the work’s almost done so throw open the doors,
It’s time for a party, now don’t be a bore.
Oh… the things you will see and the things you will hear,
Oh the things that will fill you with holiday cheer!
There’ll be Jonathan’s Pudding, Hoo-skies Hash and roast beast,
While Keith Lockhart and his Pops play a musical feast.
So send in your money, reserve seats today,
Come celebrate all in the true Hoo-skies way!

An elegant Grand Reopening Reception at 5:00 pm
