MSO to celebrate holidays with seasonal favorites

The Mid-Atlantic Symphony’s holiday concerts will feature traditional seasonal favorites with a little extra pop, the organization announced this week. The MSO is hosting its holiday concert, “Holiday Joy, Angelic Sisters!” on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre in Easton, Md.; on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. at Cape Henlopen High School, 1250 Kings Highway, Lewes; and on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 3 p.m. at Ocean City Convention Center, 4001 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Md.

In the concert, the Karpov sisters will combine opera, jazz and pop in a special way.

The MSO’s New Year’s Eve Concert will be held on Monday, Dec. 31, at 7 p.m. at Christ Church in Easton, Md., featuring vocalist Jessica Renfro.

Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle for her “elegant” soprano, both “incisive and tender,” Suzanne Karpov in the 2016-2017 season made her debut with Washington National Opera and has made various soprano soloist appearances since, including recently her professional debut with American Bach Soloists in Handel’s “Messiah,” a performance of “Messiah” at the Kennedy Center with the Washington National Opera Orchestra.

Karpov’s sister Jessica Karpov is a song-writer for artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Brittany Spears and Demi Lovato.

Mezzo Soprano Jessica Renfro has performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Delaware Symphony Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, Bach in Baltimore Concert Series and the Bay-Atlantic Symphony in solo orchestral works including Handel’s “Messiah,” the Mozart “Requiem” and the Bach “B Minor Mass.”

Tickets for these concerts and more of the MSO’s performances are available online at or by telephone at 1-888-846-8600. For further information, visit
