Vocal music leads the way with the Kansas City Symphony’s “cast of thousands” version of Handel’s Messiah, concerts by the Heartland Men’s Chorus, The Ten Tenors, our two local music conservatories, Musica Sacra, KC Women’s Chorus, Kantorei, among others. You can hear Tchaikovsky’s always delightful "Nutcracker" score played by the Kansas City Symphony at the Kansas City Ballet performances, and a hilarious takeoff of the same at the Owen Cox Dance Group’s "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King".

The Friends of Chamber Music features the Baroque sounds of Stile Antico. And, oh, did we mention that world famous mezzo Joyce DiDonato will also be in town on the Harriman Jewell Series? Her recital is not holiday fare, but features arias from her latest album about songs of war. Complete listings are below.
