The New Westminster Symphony Orchestra and the Richmond Academy of Dance are joining forces once again to bring an evening of Christmas magic to the Massey Theatre.

The two groups are offering up their annual Christmas concert on Friday, Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

"And it will undoubtedly be a feast for your eyes and ears," said local arts promoter Tony Antonias in a press release.

Under the direction of Jin "Jack" Zhang, the orchestra will offer up the sounds of Christmas carols, seasonal polkas and waltzes.

Students from the Richmond Academy of Dance will perform selections from Tchaikovsky's popular Nutcracker, as well as dancing to the lovely music from Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony.

The evening also includes a Christmas reading for children by prominent local actor Russell Roberts.

"If you want to give your family a holiday memory they'll treasure, bring them to Massey Theatre on Friday night," Antonias said.

Admission is by donation.
