Michigan: 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, Michigan will get to do just that this season with Elf in Concert coming to town.
To start off the Christmas month, you can sing along with Buddy. On Friday, December 1, and Saturday, December 2, Elf In Concert will be performed in Grand Rapids at DeVos Performance Hall. Then, Buddy and company will be sharing their music in Detroit. This concert will take place on Friday, December 22 and Saturday, December 23 at Orchestra Hall.
“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,” Orchestra Hall 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.
