As downtown celebrated the Circle of Lights last week, the luminescence of the city isn’t the only sign that Indianapolis is ready to ring in the holiday spirit. Kicking off on December 6th, the 28th annual Duke Energy Yuletide Celebration aims to bring the holiday cheer to all who witness it! Considered by many to be Indiana’s greatest holiday tradition, this medley of classical holiday tunes takes over the Indianapolis Symphony hall for the month of December.

Adding to the spirit of a Hoosier holiday, the five-time Grammy Award-winner and Indiana favorite Sandi Patty returns with Jack Everly to give concertgoers an ISO performance like none other. Accompanying these two Indiana all stars are the always-spectacular members of the ISO and a cast of Broadway greats. Per tradition the members of The von Trapp Family will hit the stage to belt out the classic tunes from the Sound of Music as well as adding their own personal flare to our favorite holiday jingles.
