The Eureka Symphony and Eureka Symphony Orchestra present their Winter Dreams Concert at the Arkley Center. Led by conductor and local treasure Carol Jacobson, this concert will feature a holiday-themed repertoire including parts of Handel's advent-ubiquitous Messiah and a sing-along of Christmas carols. This sort of thing is pretty magical this time of year, especially to the kiddies, so it's a real blessing that children 12 and under enjoy free admission to this two-night event. For us adults it's a sliding scale of $19-$49 but well worth the price for skillfully executed holiday cheer.
