The Iceland Symphony Orchestra’s Christmas concerts have been enormously popular among listeners of all ages. This gala familyconcert presents Christmas hits and seasonal classics, with the beautiful sounds of the orchestra on full display.Young ballet dancers perform numbers from The Nutcracker, pianists perform a Christmas medley, the Garðabær Music School’s saxophone ensemble adds some swing, making for a perfect transition to Caribbean spice provided by a steel drum band. The Reykjavík Girls’ forces with the Litlu Sprotarnir Sign Language Choir to bring the Christmas spirit to concert guests. With the inimitable Barbara the Clown as Master of Ceremonies, the festive mood will infect everyone. The concert is also performed in Icelandic Sign Language, and the Reykjanesbær Music School Bell Choir plays Christmas songs before and after the programme.
