Terre Haute Symphony annual holiday concert, Joyful Holidays, Dec. 5, featuring soprano Cathy Berns Rund, 4:30 p.m. in Maryland Community Church, 4700 S. Indiana 46. Social distancing and masks required.

The Terre Haute Symphony is gearing up to present its annual holiday concert at Maryland Community Church in a socially distanced and masked setting. 

The THSO welcomes Terre Haute favorite soprano Cathy Berns Rund, who will join 21 THSO musicians on stage Dec. 5 for an evening holiday favorites such as Silver Bells, Schubert’s Ave Maria, Chanukah Chanukah, The Christmas Song, and O Holy Night. 

Renowned pianist and scholar Charles Webb hails Rund for her “impeccable pitch and total control of her voice, spinning exquisite sounds even from the highest registers.”

In addition, the THSO will feature principal clarinet Samantha Johnson-Helms on Shugar’s Hanukkah Overture, celebrating Klezmer style music not often heard with a symphony orchestra.
