Soprano Janinah Burnett lends 'shimmering vocals' to Holiday Pops on Dec. 4

The most highly anticipated event of the season — the Holiday Pops Spectacular — will return with an all-new matinee performance, featuring soloist Janinah Burnett on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 3 p.m. at Martinsville High School Auditorium.

There’s no better way to lift your spirits than with the music of the season delivered in full sound and spectacle by the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra. This year, David Stewart Wiley conducts the Holiday Pops with all the magical elements you have come to expect — high energy, familiar carols and lots of holiday warmth. The event also will feature world-renowned soprano Janinah Burnett as the soloist. She is known for her roles on Broadway and at the Metropolitan Opera. You will not want to miss her soaring and shimmering vocals. Her album, “Love the Color of Your Butterfly,” was released in 2021.

Altrusa will collect non-perishable food items for Grace Network in the lobby during the symphony’s performance.

Tickets to the Holiday Pops Spectacular are $20 for general admission, $25 for reserved seating and $5 for students. Purchase tickets here.

This performance is partially supported by funding from the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
