Holiday homes dressed for Dicken's Christmas Carol, that's the theme for this year's Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Holiday Home Tours.

"Each one of the houses will have an artist and decorator that have come together to create their interpretation of past, present and future."

Lindsey Grant, development director for the Wyoming Symphony,  says they're hoping for a nostalgic atmosphere as they offer  a walking tour of homes  that, on Friday evening, culminates with a reception at Grant Street Grocer.

"We're getting people excited for the holiday season coming up and of course everyone's curious to get inside the homes as well. We just wanted to take a different path this year and really give everybody an experience with the Christmas Carole theme. So it should be a lot of fun."

The intent of the home tours is to raise funds for the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Their season continues with a 'Holiday on Broadway' concert December 3rd  featuring a Tony Award Winning special guest singer,  plus a special conductor.

"We're actually going to have a young guest conductor from one of the schools come on and help conduct the symphony with Matthew Savery.  We've done an essay contest and we're still waiting to get all those in, and then we'll choose an essay and who ever wins  will get to go up and conduct the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra."

The wining guest conductor will come from a local fifth grade class. the activities of the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra and make your way to the Holiday Home Tours next Friday, November 18th, or Saturday the 19th.
