Nov. 25 Making Spirits Bright Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St. 7 p.m. FREE, 345.0606 A first-come, first-served event worth taking a chance on is this free holiday concert performed by the Nebraska Wind Symphony and featuring silky smooth vocalist Camille Metoyer Moten of Omaha. The community ensemble of 85 musicians will join Moten, a seasoned artist who is equally comfortable singing jazz, Broadway or holiday standards, in a polished night of entertainment. Expect some sing-a-longs. Timing is everything with this event, which is part of the city’s Holiday Lights Festival. If you plan taking in the lighting ceremony and the concert, then it’s best you allot time for getting from the lighting spectacular to the concert, which immediately follows the flip-the-switch ceremony that turns downtown into a giant Xmas display. Seating is limited at the show.
