IPO celebrates the holidays with the family friendly Back Together For The Holidays program featuring the holiday classic The Snowman, a magical journey of Raymond Briggs’ famous story with narration.
In addition to this wonderful work, other arrangements such as “Welcome Sweet Christmas,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “Jingle Bells” will be performed.

Narrated by Grammy award winner Bill McMurray, IPO’s Holiday Program is a great way to celebrate the holiday season with the entire family!
