Good news for couch potatoes: You don’t even have to put on pants to watch the Columbus Symphony this holiday. 

The Columbus Symphony will broadcast “The Columbus Symphony Holiday Spectacular” Dec. 12 and 25. 

Led by CSO Principal Pops Conductor Stuart Chafetz, the symphony will perform an hour-long, socially distanced, family-friendly concert with classic carols, holiday pop songs, and other seasonal tunes. 

The Columbus Symphony Chorus, Columbus Children’s Choir, special guest vocalist N’Kenge, and the big jolly elf himself (that would be Santa) will participate. 


Columbus Symphony Executive Director Denise Rehg said the symphony is excited to bring the beauty and joy of symphonic music into the homes of the communities it serves this holiday season. 

“Our mission of inspiring and building a strong community through music is more important now than ever, and we are committed to continue doing that in a safe and socially responsible way,” Rehg said. 

The concert will air at 7 p.m. Dec. 12 on WBNS-TV CBS 10 and at 7 p.m. Dec. 25 on WCMH-TV NBC 4. You can also stream the concert for free at from 8 p.m. Dec. 25 through midnight Dec. 31. 

The other bonus of a virtual concert? You can feel free to sing along without the fear of public humiliation. So, warm up your vocal chords and get ready to jingle the ol’ bells.
