Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra returns with holiday concerts


The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra rings in the holiday season the weekend after Thanksgiving with three Holiday Pops concerts.

Music Director John Morris Russell will be joined by American Traditions Singing Competition Winner Ashleigh Smith; cellist Brandon Leonard, winner of the 2021 HHSO Youth Concerto Competition; and members of the HHSO Chorus.

The program features holiday classics, including the traditional choir singing.

“The First Presbyterian Church gave the HHSO and the entire community an early holiday gift,” HHSO President and CEO Alan Jordan said of lifting his COVID capacity restrictions, which allowed the concert to resume ticket sales. “We now have plenty of good seats available for the two concerts on Hilton Head Island, and tickets are also available for the Bluffton concert.”

All HHSO performers are vaccinated, as are event staff and volunteers. Spectators must show proof of vaccination prior to attending and masks are recommended. Those whose young age makes them unable to receive the vaccine should wear face coverings.

When and where are the shows?

Saturday November 27 – 7:00 p.m. at the Parish Life Center at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Bluffton. Tickets cost $ 25 for the public and $ 20 for church members. This performance is “slightly shortened to be family”.

Sunday November 28 and Monday November 29 – 7:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church on Hilton Head Island. Reserved tickets are $ 60, $ 50 and $ 25. These performances include the complete program.

Tickets can be purchased at hhso.org or by calling the HHSO office at 843-842-2055.
