Tradition is the name of the game at this concert, with “Sleighride,” Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, traditional carols and other music of the season. Blank, a three-time Tony-nominated orchestrator known for his Broadway orchestrations for “Catch Me If You Can,” “White Christmas” and “The Drowsy Chaperone,” will lead the orchestra in his arrangements of “Santa Baby,” “Let it Snow” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
