St. Charles—Holiday musical magic is in the air as the Fox Valley Philharmonic orchestra prepares to present “Holiday Magic!”

The concert is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6, at 3 p.m. at the Norris Cultural Arts Center in St. Charles. The orchestra continues its year-long effort to feed the hungry by requesting concert patrons to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to a local food bank.

Members of the orchestra represent 18 Illinois communities, including Aurora, Batavia, Carol Stream, Chicago, Downers Grove, Elgin, Geneva, Joliet, Montgomery, Naperville, North Aurora, Oswego, St. Charles, Westchester and Western Springs.

Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults, $15 for (65+) and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased by calling 1-800-838-3006. For group discounts, call (630) 879-8018.
