THE SCOOP | The Toronto Symphony Orchestra Announces Home Alone in Concert & More Holiday Programming

By Anya Wassenberg on October 8, 2021

TSO-home_alone

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) has announced new holiday concert options, including the return of audience favourite Home Alone in Concert for three performances, along with an additional Holiday Pops date.

Home Alone is the story of an 8-year-old boy who’s accidentally left alone over the Christmas holidays when his family leaves for vacation. Starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, it’s become a holiday tradition for many, and features a score by John William, which the TSO will perform live.
