PORTLAND – The Portland Symphony Orchestra has gotten into the holiday shopping spirit and is offering a six-hour sale on Black Friday, Nov. 28, when all tickets to the Friday, Dec. 17, “Magic of Christmas” performance will be $25.

Tickets usually range from $25 to $60.

The sale will run from noon to 6 p.m. on that day only.

Discounted tickets to the 7:30 p.m. concert may be purchased online at PortTix.com, by calling 842-0800 or in person at PortTix in the Merrill Auditorium lobby at 20 Myrtle St. Phone and Internet orders are subject to a $2 handling fee (usually $5).

This special price does not apply to previous purchases and cannot be combined with any other discounts or offers.

This year’s “Magic of Christmas” production welcomes conductor Bruce Hangen, Magic’s “original” conductor, back to the podium, along with the all-volunteer Magic of Christmas Choir, Windham Chamber Singers and members of Maine State and Portland ballets.

Critically acclaimed tenor Matthew DiBattista will lend his vocal talents, and Suzanne Nance, music director of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, will narrate. Portland’s municipal organist, Ray Cornils, will play an hour before each performance.
