The Yat Pack is a New Orleans-based band that brings back the Swing Era with a Vegas flair - the classic Big Band sounds of Sinatra & Bobby Darin to contemporary artists like Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr.
The Fleur de Lys Chamber Orchestra is proud to present its next performance. The string ensemble will play classical pieces by Corelli, Bach, and Holst, as well as traditional Christmas carols with a sing along. Please join us for a festive concert with candle light to start off the holiday season!
