Symphony NH Holiday House Tour

A symphony of ideas for holiday décor



If you’re the type who wakes up on the morning of November 23 ready to deck the halls, you might consider putting the tinsel on hold until early December.

Each year, the Friends of Symphony NH kick off the month with their holiday house tour, a benefit event that takes place at a number of professionally decorated homes in the Nashua area. Themes range from modern to classic, with plenty of inspiration at each. Enjoy live music as you take in the various displays — tables set for elegant Christmas meals, lights, mantels and banisters strewn with winter greens, towering trees and much more.

The tour is a perfect complement to Symphony NH’s mission to be an inspiring and enlightening cultural force. Established in 1923, the symphony was known as the Nashua Symphony Orchestra until 2012. No matter the name, throughout the years, they’ve continuously provided music lovers with a diverse range of performances and engaging programs.

The tour isn’t just great way to get into the holiday mood — it’s a chance to contribute to an important part of New Hampshire’s arts community.

Last year, participants could sample wines from Fulchino Vineyards. This year’s tour is from December 1 to 2. Visit symphonynh.org for details or to purchase tickets.

The Friends of Symphony NH is an eclectic social group that offers both active members and those who merely attend their events a chance to meet people and become more involved in the arts community of southern New Hampshire.
