Upham's Corner and all of Dorchester say: THANKS!!

With Kim McLaren hosting, A Dorchester Christmas at the Strand Theatre drew hundreds of holiday revelers to enjoy the Boston Classical Orchestra under the direction of Steven Lipsitt playing selections from Handel's Messiah and Tchaikovsky's  "The Nutcracker."


Singers and StringsSingers and strings from the Pope John Paul II Catholic Academy lined up behind the orchestra, in front of the orchestra and on the bleachers.  Together they performed

"Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," "Bring a Torch" and "Here in my House."

Boston Classical OrchestraThe BCO performed Mr. Lipsitt's own arrangements of many holiday favorites such as

"Winter Wonderland," "The Chanukah Song" and "Let it Snow."

A DuetTo the great delight of the audience, Kim McLaren and Steven Lipsitt sang a duet:

"Baby, it's Cold Outside."

A Sing-alongThe evening ended with a sing-along featuring the Boston City Singers dressed in Santa hats and bright red ties. Their youthful yet robust voices led us in warm renditions of

"O come, all ye faithful," "In the bleak mid-winter","Hark! the herald angels sing" and "Deck the halls."

The AudienceThe audience expressed its appreciation to everyone with clapping, bravos and a standing ovation.
