Holiday Light Spectacular

Friday, December 27, 2019 | 4:30pm

Transport your family to a wintry wonderland as the soaring architecture of the Cathedral comes alive with a dazzling light show and an animated film about a boy and his snowman who comes to life for one enchanted evening.

Fall in love with The Snowman, a beloved 1982 film about a boy’s magical poignant journey with his snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra. Glistening lights along the Cathedral’s vaulted ceiling and soaring columns bring you into the story, followed by live-music performances of holiday favorites, from “Silver Bells” to “Walking in a Winter Wonderland.”

This indoor experience includes the 30-minute film with live orchestra, moving light display and short orchestral concert of your favorite holiday songs. It’s a perfect gift for friends, children and parents who, as the song says, “can hardly wait for school to start again!”
