Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra: Macy's Holiday Celebration


Usually when you hear Charlie Brennan's voice, it's coming at you from your car radio, and he's typically not taking the time to rhyme during his KMOX talk show. But things change when he makes merry during the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra's Macy's Holiday Celebration. This festive event not only features Brennan reading Clement Clarke Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas" (a.k.a. "The Night Before Christmas") amid lovely decorations, but there's also live music — thanks to the symphony -- from The Polar Express, Frozen and It's a Wonderful Life. Plus, rumor has it that the big guy himself will also make an appearance!
