Jamie Farr to perform with the Cleveland Orchestra

(Cleveland) - The Cleveland Orchestra’s annual Christmas concerts are a holiday tradition, and Severance Hall is the destination in Northeast Ohio for families and friends to gather and celebrate the season. 

On Friday, December 14, this year’s series of eleven concerts conducted by Richard Kaufman begins — all amidst the Yuletide splendor of Severance Hall, which will be decked out with dazzling decorations. 

The Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus Chamber Ensemble, Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus — and guest choirs from The College of Wooster and the The University of Akron — join the Orchestra to fill your festivities with uplifting and joyful music.

As a special addition this December, a celebrity guest — actor Jamie Farr, best known for his role of Corporal (later Sergeant) Maxwell Q. Klinger on the hit television sitcom M*A*S*H — will join the Orchestra and Choruses on stage. 

The Toledo, Ohio native will navigate the audience on a musical journey through the classic tale “The Night Before Christmas.”

Wintery joy and the Christmas spirit fill the air through beloved classics like “O Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” and “Silent Night”; music from holiday film favorites including Polar Express and John Williams’s score to Home Alone; and awe-inspiring classical works such as the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah
