On December 2nd, the Richardson Symphony Orchestra is hosting its annual Holiday Classics Concert. This year’s festive performance features 5 Second Rule, a high-energy acoustic band based in Dallas.
Ring in the holidays with the RSO and enjoy the sounds of your favorite holiday classics, such as: Jingle Bells Fantasy, Frosty All the Way, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, O Holy Night and more!
5 Second Rule’s musical roots in Celtic, folk, classical, and rock music set the stage for joyous and exciting performances. They play original, progressive and traditional music. Their group includes Kat Glazeon on the fiddle, Ian Gill playing guitar and mandolin, David Lovrien (whistle, sax, keyboard), Paul Dryeron on mandolin, banjo, guitar, and harmonica, and Rick Holt playing bodhran, drums, and percussion. And furthermore, their 5-part vocals are a hallmark of their distinctive sound.
This RSO season is the 12th season conducted under the baton of Maestro Clay Couturiaux. Clay brings energy, precision and creativity to every RSO performance. He is also the conductor of the University of North Texas Concert Orchestra and works as the Assistant Director of Orchestral Studies at UNT, where he teaches fundamentals of conducting technique, advanced orchestral conducting, and administrates the orchestral studies area.
The Richardson Symphony Orchestra was founded by a group of music lovers with support from business and civic organizations. The first concert was held on October 30, 1962, with 55 orchestra members and Chris Xeros as conductor. The RSO is now the resident symphony of the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts and offers a variety of classical and pop concerts each season programmed to appeal to the varied audiences of the DFW metroplex. In addition to the critically acclaimed season performances, the Richardson Symphony is also widely regarded as a leader in education and community outreach programs. The Ann & Charles Eisemann International Young Artists Competition draws talented young performers from around the world each year. The orchestra is also actively involved in providing an introduction to classical music for the third-grade students of the Richardson Independent School District and provides a wide variety of community outreach programs.
