Holiday Pops featuring Melinda Doolittle

December 2-4, 2016

Program and Description

It’s Cincinnati’s smash-hit holiday tradition!

Back where it all began in the Taft Theatre with John Morris Russell’s beloved Home for the Holidays program, join us to make new family memories with a joyful blend of holiday favorites, featuring American Idol show-stopper Melinda Doolittle. Kick off the holiday season with a heartwarming event for all ages. Kids will enjoy costumed characters and candy canes in the lobby.

Kids’ tickets just $15! PLUS, donate a toy for our Holiday Gift Drive (gifts recommended for ages 4-12) for St. Vincent de Paul of Cincinnati. 

Pops Conductor John Morris Russell will sign CDs in the Taft Theatre lobby after each performance.

To accommodate anticipated demand, we have two additional matinee performances of this program.
