The Butler County Symphony is offering a couple of holiday traditions this weekend.
First, the Butler County Symphony Holiday Tour of Homes will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are still available for $20 at the Butler County Symphony Office, May’s Music Shoppe, and Meridian Station. Tickets the day of the event will be $25.
This event will also include a luncheon and basket raffle at First English Lutheran Church. Organizer Heather Helsel says there’s a lot of effort and preparation that goes into this annual fundraiser
“This is going to be our 30th year,” Helsel said. “It’s a great tradition for the community and we are thrilled that this was able to come together. We’ve got a great team of volunteers and a great committee that have gotten some fantastic homes to be featured this year.”
Then, the annual Holiday Traditions concert is planned for Saturday evening at the Butler Intermediate High School beginning at 7:30 p.m.
According to Conductor Matthew Kramer, the show will include the popular sing-along of holiday classics as well as something new and featured performers.
“New for us this year is the presentation of Handel’s Part 1 of Messiah,” Kramer said. “The second half of the program features Seneca Valley and Butler High School choruses as we have done for many years.”
Tickets are $25 for adults and $8 for students and can be purchased online or at the Symphony office.
