A champion of the American Songbook who has collaborated with some of entertainment’s biggest names — from Barbara Streisand to Carol King – will join the Carmel Symphony Orchestra (CSO) during two special performances in the “IU Health Holidays with Ann Hampton Callaway.” The performances will be at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Palladium on December 10.

Serving as guest conductor is the internationally renowned Maestro Charles Prince. Prince serves as the music director for the Wiener Operettensommer in Vienna, Austria and is a regular guest conductor for the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra and the Kuopi Symphony in Finland.

This celebration – perfect for audiences of all ages — includes holiday favorites from the CSO like Mel Torme’s “Christmas Song,” the moving “Mary Did You Know” as well as an audience sing-along. Callaway’s unique singing style that blends jazz and traditional pop will entertain all ages with familiar tunes “White Christmas” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as well as her original songs including “Christmas Lullaby” – a song from Barbara Streisand’s holiday repertoire.
