This one-hour concert will feature seasonal favorites as you’ve never heard them before such as The Turkey in the Straw, Music from Frozen, and a special musical adaptation of the beloved book The Polar Express featuring the Notre Dame Children’s Choir and Baritone, Stephen Lancaster.  Come an hour early for pre-concert activities for the whole family including an instrument petting zoo!
