NSO Holiday Home Tour Tickets Now on Sale
The Newport Symphony Orchestra announces tickets for their Holiday Home Tour are now on sale. The Holiday Home Tour will take place in Newport December 7 and 8, and will include tours of four unique Newport houses along breathtaking Yaquina Bay along with the newly opened Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center. Each home is sumptuously decked out for the holidays, with decorations individually highlighting the characteristics of each house with beauty and charm. The trees donated by Fishing Family Farm will thrill visitors with eclectic and unusual ornaments, including musical instruments and glimmering crystals. Tour designers Kim McKnight with Carpet One, Sioux Boston of Newport, and Larry Tapanen of Beverly Beach will transform the houses into places of enchantment and joy.
Several of the homes plus the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center will have musicians performing throughout each day, including the vocal groups CoastalAires, Women of Note, and High Tide Quartet, plus combinations of strings and piano by local musicians and the Sea Strings Quartet. The Tour Bake Sale will be at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center featuring cakes and breads for holiday parties. Proceeds from the tour will help fund Newport Symphony Orchestra activities, including their sponsored youth programs. The NSO is grateful to have US Bank as its title sponsor this year.
The event will be held Saturday, December 7 between 11 am and 4 pm and again on Sunday, December 8 between noon and 4 pm. Tickets are $18 per person in advance and $20 the days of the Tour, and can be purchased at JC Market in Newport and at the Newport Symphony Orchestra office at the Performing Arts Center or online at newportsymphony.org. Tickets will also be available at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center, 333 SE Bay Blvd, Newport, on the days of the Tour.
