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, November 26th, 2018, through December 27th, with the exception of December 25th, these animatronic musicians, under the inspired direction of Maestro Leonard Bearstein, put on a 45 minute long set, including their interpretation of 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, perform on the hour, but they do take some breaks throughout the day to stretch their paws and have a quick drink. You can see the schedule here. They do take Christmas Day off.
In general, they perform hourly from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., but on most Saturdays their last performance is at noon. There are some other exceptions, so make sure to check the schedule.
