Tired of human musicians, with all of their tuning up, sound checks and wanting you to sort the M&Ms by color in the dressing room? Leonard Bearstein Symphony Orchestra might be the answer. Performing in Founders Hall, 100 North Tryon Street, December 1st, 2014, through December 26th, these animatronic musicians, under the inspired direction of Maestro Leonard Bearstein, put on a 45 minute long set, including holiday songs like “Jingle Bells,” “Feliz Navidad,” “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” and “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.” They’re not really great with taking requests, so don’t be that guy.
The bears, who have been practicing feverishly, will perform tirelessly from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., but they do take some breaks throughout the day.
There are also a few time when they will not be performing:
Tuesday, Dec. 4 – no 5 p.m., 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. performances Join us for Lights on the Square! Leonard and the other musicians will wrap up the evening with their 8 p.m. performance.
Saturday, Dec. 6 – all 1 p.m. – 8 p.m. shows cancelled
Monday, Dec. 8 – no 11 a.m. and noon shows
Saturday, Dec. 13 – all 1 p.m. – 8 p.m. shows cancelled
