Keeping the tempo on the Emerald Coast’s cultural scene since its founding in 2005, Sinfonia Gulf Coast maintains the tradition of “symphony redefined” as the region’s only fully professional symphony orchestra.
Sinfonia’s annual holiday concert on Friday, Dec. 16 at Destiny Worship Center, will feature orchestral arrangements of seasonal classics paired with the exhilarating vocals of The Manhattan Transfer.
The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great pop and jazz hits, a legacy that the group has cemented since their first recording 40 years ago. The legendary quartet has been awarded 10 Grammy Awards of 20 nominations and has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. They are responsible for 19 singles and 29 albums during their stellar career and their music has been featured in major feature films and television shows. The group has also recorded with an impressive roster of artists including Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, Laura Nyro, Phil Collins, B.B. King, Chaka Khan, James Taylor, and Frankie Valli.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 for preferred (floor) seating and $29.50 for balcony. Season 3-Paks are also still available for $120 per person, and feature preferred seating for the remaining season concerts including The Manhattan Transfer on Dec. 16, Musical Time Travel featuring violinist Jennifer Koh on Jan. 20, 2017 and “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II,” on March 25, 2017. All performances will begin at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II,” which will begin at 7 p.m.
