About

Step out of the cold and allow time-honored holiday classics to warm your heart with Marvin Hamlisch and the NSO Pops. Enjoy music that captures the spirit of the holiday season as Santa and other special guests drop in to wish you Happy Holidays! A highlight of this year's festivities is the NSO's Youth Fellowship program, with two outstanding participants specially selected by Marvin Hamlisch for these performances. The Washington Post has raved about this festive time when the "Concert Hall is festooned with seasonal decorations and young children are watching the proceedings raptly. Infectious rhythms and soaring voices made for the best kind of Pops holiday." Don't miss this annual Kennedy Center tradition!

More with Marvin! Experience more of Marvin Hamlisch's engaging personality, musical talents, and unique humor immediately following the Thu., Dec. 9 performance.
