About the Concert:
A tradition unmatched in Northern Colorado, Poinsettia Pops has kicked off the Holiday Season in Greeley for over thirty years. This holiday concert features The Greeley Phil, The Greeley Chorale and the Greeley Children’s Chorale, and tenor Charles Moore in a performance of seasonal favorites and beloved carols. The entire family will have fun at this joyous concert in the poinsettia-adorned Monfort Concert Hall.
What’s Interesting About this Concert:
- This concert caps the week-long Festival of Trees event that takes place annually in the UCCC
- The entire stage will be decorated with poinsettias (you can order some for your home or office through November leading up to the concert)
- Singing along to the songs you know (probably all of them) is encouraged
