The music of holiday movies and television specials leap off the silver and small screens to the concert stage for MAFB’s “Kringle and Krampus.” Classics like Miracle on 34th St., A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Christmas Vacation are juxtaposed with some off-the-wall selections including Randall Standridge’s A Christmas Tale: Beware the Krampus, Jerry Goldsmith’s award-winning score to Gremlins, and what if 2001: A Space Odyssey was a Christmas film with Julie Giroux’s Beautiful Blue Danube Christmas Waltz. Bass vocalist Luke Williams is the guest soloist for Beware the Krampus, “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch,” and John Moss’ evocative setting of Night Before Christmas.
