TicketNetwork Advisory -- 'Tis the Season to Attend a Holiday Concert

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 11, 2011) - The holiday season is fast approaching and there is no better way to get in a festive mood than by attending one of the many concerts with a holiday theme. Regardless of one's taste in music, there is a show for everyone. From traditional holiday events to something a little more modern, there are plenty of options!

Fans of the classics will find a local orchestra is the best way to experience holiday music, as many cities set aside one or more dates for shows featuring the standards. These concerts may be played by the full symphony or by smaller pops orchestras. The Boston Pops, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and the Phoenix Symphony all have upcoming holiday-themed shows.

Those looking for a more recent twist on the classics should consider Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mannheim Steamroller. TSO combines rock music with classical songs and a laser light show to provide one of the most unique experiences of the season. Mannheim Steamroller, meanwhile, takes popular Christmas music and performs it through a new age filter.

Concert-goers in the mood for star power and non-holiday music can find more than their fill at any one of the radio station-sponsored jingle balls, jams, and bashes such as Z100's Jingle Ball and the B96 Jingle Bash. These concerts feature some of the hottest acts of the year, including Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, LMFAO, Karmin, Jason Derulo, and Foster the People.

There are dozens of shows running this holiday season. View our holiday concerts guide to find something suited to your taste.
