A Merry Little Christmas

There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit with the MSO’s popular Christmas concert, offering holiday fun for the whole family. The show is available in two different formats: A shorter one-hour concert for young kids, and a full all-ages concert later that evening.

Tickets to each of these shows can be purchased at The Living Arts Centre’s website.

This is the MSO’s first full in-person season since the pandemic, during which they did a number of digital shows and performances until the theatre was able to fully reopen to guests.

The MSO continues to be one of Mississauga’s finest arts and culture institutions for over 50 years. Since being established in 1972, the orchestra has performed a wide range of different concerts and community events at The Living Arts Centre and other venues across the city.
