The Roanoke Symphony Orchestra returns to the Moss Arts Center for a second consecutive year to celebrate the joyous sounds of the holiday season. The Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech presents the sold-out performance of “Holiday Pops” on Saturday, Dec. 6, at 4 p.m.

The performance is co-presented by the New River Valley Friends of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra and will be held in the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre, located within the Moss Arts Center’s Street and Davis Performance Hall at 190 Alumni Mall. 

David Stewart Wiley, music director and conductor, will lead the orchestra as it performs its most popular concert of the year, which will include beloved holiday carols, sacred classics, and audience sing-a-longs.

The Roanoke Symphony Orchestra will be joined by the Virginia Tech Choirs under the direction of Dwight Bigler, assistant professor in Virginia Tech’s School of Performing Arts and director of choral activities.
