The Indianapolis Symphony Christmas celebration is back in 2021
After a year without one of Indianapolis’ most beloved Christmas traditions, the Yuletide live celebration is back in 2021.
The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and its guests will present 26 performances in their usual inimitable style with a cast of dancers and characters performing in cheerful ensembles and comedy skits. Orchestra members and singers will unleash the swelling tunes of their favorite Christmas carols at the Hilbert Circle Theater.
Here’s what you need to know to attend Yuletide in 2021.
What you will see
Grammy Award winner Sandi Patty will return to welcome Yuletide, and Pops Principal Conductor Jack Everly will lead the orchestra. Among the guests this year is T.3, the three-man vocal group known from “America’s Got Talent”. A holiday-themed medley will be new this year.
Returning acts include the Holly Jolly Dollies, famous tap dancing Santas and the musical “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. The large Christmas tree in the hall, costumed figures and songs from the Wurlitzer organ will also be back.

The concerts will take place from December 3 to 23. Most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will see two shows, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Other shows take place on certain Wednesdays and Thursdays; other dates are planned for the week before Christmas.
