Holiday Pops in the Heartland

Celebrate the holidays with festive music and holiday songs. Holiday Pops in the Heartland is truly a community affair as the ISO is joined by area performing arts groups, including the Bloomington-Normal Youth Symphony, Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony, Springfield Ballet Company, Springfield Youth Performance Group, and the Twin Cities School of Dance. But that’s not all! The ISO performs the soundtrack to Raymond Brigg’s holiday classic The Snowman featuring Harrison Faulkner as the Boy Soprano.
