A Glorious Tradition: The Fabulous Philadelphians' Glorious Seasonal Sounds

On this Sunday's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast on WRTI, we'll listen in on a great seasonal tradition. As WRTI's Jim Cotter reports, the Glorious Sound of Christmas is still one of the orchestra's most beloved presentations, both for audiences and for many of the musicians who play it.

Violinist Davyd Booth's relationship with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Christmas music started years before he would play with the ensemble - at family holiday celebrations and beyond.

The Philadelphia Orchestra performs the Glorious Sound of Christmas this Sunday afternoon at 1 pm on WRTI, and in concert at the Kimmel Center on December 19, 20 and 21. Concert details here.
