— The Modesto Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Daniel R. Afonso Jr., held its Holiday Candlelight Concert on Tuesday night at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Modesto.

The orchestra was joined by the MSO Chorus, also directed by Afonso, and guest performers the Expressions Youth Choirs – which began the program with a candlelight procession – and Opus Handbell Ensemble.

The program of traditional holiday music included such favorites as “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.”
