Pick Of The Day: A Flicker Of Light On A Christmas Night

Every year around this time the Regina Symphony Orchestra presents a holiday-themed performance designed to appeal to a younger crowd than that which typically goes to symphony performances. This year’s offering is A Flicker Of Light On a Christmas Night. It’s about a mysterious stranger who helps three down-in-the-dumps kids rediscover the meaning of the holidays through an exploration of various Yuletide traditions.

The performance is guest conducted by Alan Denike and goes at Conexus Arts Centre this afternoon at 3 p.m. For ticket info call 1-866-973-9614. To give you a taste, here’s a snippet of a recent performance by Ottawa’s Platypus Theatre:
