2. 'A Christmas Carol in Concert'

We're not one to scoff at a tradition -- even if it includes a twist. This version of Charles Dickens' classic includes the BSO with a new score written by "Too Hot to Handel" co-writer Bob Christianson (who also composed for "Sex and the City") and lyricist Alisa Hauser, featuring a range of genres from gospel to Broadway. Never fear -- Scrooge is still there. 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. 1212 Cathedral St., Mount Vernon. $32-$57. bsomusic.org Dave Hoffman
