Upcoming holiday cheer

First there's Thanksgiving, then Black Friday, and finally there is the three weeks before Christmas that are saturated with "holiday" music. Pops concerts, Christmas carols, and other calendar sensitive favorites are being trotted out this week. There are a few non-Christmas related options for music lovers already weary of the season.

Federal Way Symphony: The South King County orchestra performs holiday favorites at St. Luke's Church.

Brandenburg Christmas: Seattle Baroque Orchestra plays music of Bach, Handel and Telemann.  Brandenburg Concerto No.5 makes the cut as do Handel's Concerto Grosso Op.3 No.3 and Telemann's Concerto in E Minor for flute and recorder

Carol Fest: Monday, the University of Washington's seven choirs put on a holiday show of, predictably enough, carols.

Hawaiian Christmas: Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom performs Wednesday at Town Hall.

Rain City Symphony: Dubbed the opportunity orchestra, the band performs Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and Beethoven's Consecration of the House overture.

Holiday Pops: Thursday, The Seattle Symphony plunges head first into the holiday spirit with their annual pop's concert.

Icicle Creek Piano Trio: Part of the Thursday, Sherman Clay free lunchtime recital series.
