Ring in the holidays with The Copa Boys as they reunite to spread holiday cheer singing famous holiday tunes performed in swinging Rat Pack style. This performance will be filled with holiday music favorites, such as “Winter Wonderland,” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “Let it Snow,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “White Christmas,” “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” and many more!

Additional information:

  • Special appearance by Santa Claus and his singing elves from the Long Beach Youth Chorus.
  • Long Beach Police Department Annual Toy Patrol Drive will be collecting toys at the concert. 
  • The biggest Christmas sing-along in Long Beach this holiday season! Sing along to “Joy To The World,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” and “Silent Night” in the Long Beach Arena with thousands of concertgoers!

The POPS! Series is a fun and friendly way to enjoy an entertaining night out. There are two ways to experience the POPS!—either at a table of 10 on the Arena floor or from the upstairs loge in a stadium-style seat.

The concert itself starts at 8:00 PM, but the doors open at 6:00 PM with picnicking beginning at 6:30 PM where people are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic dinner and your favorite libations! If you can’t bring your own food and drink there are also concessions available at the Arena (sandwiches, snacks, full beverage service).

The holidays are a time for giving, so the Symphony is once again collecting toys for the Long Beach Police Foundation’s annual Toy Patrol Drive. Anyone wishing to donate to this effort should bring a new, unwrapped toy for boys or girls (infants to teens). The toys will be distributed to boys and girls of families that may not otherwise enjoy a happy holiday.

Program and artists subject to change.
