The Fairfax Symphony is putting together something special this week, just in time for the holidays.

"Christmas in Black and White" is a new and innovative type of performance that will combine the symphony's beautiful holiday music with the voices of the National Broadway Chorus, all set against the nostalgic backdrop of classic, black-and-white, silent films.

The films selected for the evening include "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," "A Winter Straw Ride," "A Christmas Carol," and "The Adventure of the Wrong Santa Claus."

The program was the brainchild of Pops conductor Luke Frazier, who will also lead the combined performance.

Frazier has a long and impressive resume, including performances in the New York City Chinese Lunar New Year Parade, the most recent presidential inauguration, and with the Washington National Opera.

Two performances of "Christmas in Black and White" will be offered this Thursday evening at the Angelika Film Center in The Mosaic District in Merrifield.


THE DETAILS:

When: This Thursday, Dec. 12, 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Where: Angelika Film Center, Mosaic District, 2911 District Ave., Fairfax (Merrifield)

Cost: $15, children under 12 free. Purchase online here.
