Celebrate a “North State New Year’s Eve” Pops concert and party on December 31st from 6-9 pm at Redding’s historic Cascade Theatre. This special event features a symphonic pops concert with champagne, hors d’oeuvres, dancing, dinner and drinking options at downtown area restaurants and bars, and a party atmosphere provided compliments of North State Symphony's Season Sponsor Dignity Health.
Doors open at 6 pm when we’ll roll out the red carpet in front of the marquee and welcome our guests inside the theatre to a warm and festive atmosphere of sparkling lights, delicious food, refreshing drinks, and good company. Concert-goers who are in a dancing mood can enjoy two custom-made dance floors in front of the stage while a jazz combo provides warm-up music.
At 7 pm, Maestro Scott Seaton will lead the orchestra in a concert of hits from famous Broadway shows, big band favorites, and other danceable musical classics. Internationally-renowned pianist Alpin Hong will perform Gershwin’s iconic “Rhapsody in Blue” and mezzo-soprano Molly Mahoney adds iridescent vocals to crowd-pleasing dance numbers. At 9 pm we’ll celebrate an early turn of the year with an audience sing-a-long to “Auld Lang Syne.”
Area restaurants and bars will provide ample options for pre- and post-concert food and libations for those wishing to extend their evening celebrations. Hotel partner Oxford Suites will have discounted room rates and shuttles to and from the Cascade Theatre.
“After a difficult summer and fall for our extended North State family of symphony-lovers and friends, we’re really looking forward to a celebratory and hopeful turning of the page into the new year,” says Elizabeth Quivey, North State Symphony Executive Director. “We wanted to do something this year that included as much of the community as possible, so are very excited to be in the heart of downtown
Redding’s Cultural District, partnering with Dignity Health, the Cascade Theatre, restaurants, and other businesses to create an enjoyable evening of good food and cheer.”
Tickets are $30 (economy), $50 (general) and $70 (premium) and include the concert, catered hors d’oeuvres and a complimentary glass of champagne, dancing, photo booth and more. No-host bars in the lobby and mezzanine are available throughout the evening.
