“It’s our favorite time of the year, and we couldn’t be happier to announce the return of our special holiday tradition, Violectric Holiday Show,” says Jones.  “Last year was a huge milestone year for us celebrating the 10th annual show and receiving two proclamations from both Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings proclaiming ‘Violectric Holiday Show 10th Anniversary Day’ in the City of Orlando.  We look forward to carrying that same momentum and excitement over to this year’s show and continuing to share our gift of electrifying string music to many Central Florida and visiting families this holiday season.”
