North Carolina: Here Is How You Can See ‘Elf In Concert’
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear,” Will Ferrell says in the iconic holiday film Elf. Well, this season, North Carolina will get to do just that with Elf in Concert coming to town.
In fact, just a few days before Christmas, you can sing along with Buddy. On Friday, November 24, and Saturday, November 25, Elf In Concert will be performed at Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte.
Then, three weeks later, the show heads to Greensboro. There, you can see Elf In Concert at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. These show dates are Friday, December 15, and Saturday, December 16.
“This holiday season, relive this heartwarming holiday classic on a giant screen as every note of John Debney’s wonderful score is played live to the motion picture,” the Greensboro Symphony explains. Although Ferrell himself won’t be there, all his favorite music will be, with the help of a full symphony orchestra.
“Experience the work of a maestro (Debney) who’s been honored with multiple Emmy and Academy Award nominations,” Elf in Concert states. Furthermore, all of the infamous jingles accompanying Buddy on his journey from the North Pole to New York City to find his family will be part of the concert experience.
