OCEAN CITY, N.J. --- The Ocean City Pops Orchestra presents "Joy to the World" a symphonic and choral celebration of the holidays, 7:30 p.m., Sat., Dec. 4 at the Hughes Performing Arts Center, 6th and Atlantic Ave.

The Orchestra will be conducted by William Scheible, the Pops Artistic Director.

Featured in the program are the Cape Shore Chorale directed by Scott J. Breiner, Soprano Colleen Daly, Baritone Dominic Inferrera and Musicologist, Richard Stanislaw, who will emcee.

The program is sponsored by Norman and JoAnne Schaut.

The program will include an array of holiday classics ranging from beloved carols to the Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, White Christmas, a carol sing-a-long and the Polar Express are a few of the favorites scheduled.

William Scheible will mark his 25th year at the helm of the Pops Orchestra in 2011. He is a talented trumpet player and a music educator in the Philadelphia School system. Scheible performs frequently with brass ensembles throughout the area.
