The always fresh, annual Richmond Symphony tradition of timeless favorites and holiday surprises will get you in the holiday spirit!

Featuring the local singer-songwriter Susan Greenbaum and the City Singer's Children's Choir.

Susan Greenbaum committed the first sin of musicians: She quit her day job. After working as a corporate executive in Fortune 500 companies, Susan traded her power suits for performing. She has been singing as long as she’s been speaking, growing up in Kansas City, in college at Harvard, and in Boston and Richmond, VA. And now her tax return, under "Occupation," reads, "Singer-songwriter."  Read more...

Based in Richmond, Virginia, City Singers Children’s Choirs perform the highest caliber of distinguished youth choral music from the body of classical, traditional, and modern compositions from around the world. Serving singers in 2nd-12th grades, their mission is to inspire the highest level of artistic choral performance while bringing together youth of the greater Richmond area in a joyful appreciation of their ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity. They are committed to making their choral education experience available to qualified singers regardless of their economic situations.  Now in their 16th performing season, City Singers Children's Choirs has been bringing Richmond area youth together through song since 1996.
