Christmas is right around the corner, and it won’t be long until we’re overdosing on presents, family and booze (to help with the family thing). But besides the standard Christmas traditions of tree-trimming and… whatever else it is your family does, perhaps you should consider hitting up a holiday concert or two in New York City.

Christmas Concerts NYC 2012

Andrea Bocelli

Italian singer Andrea Bocelli is on tour, and will be performing at the Barclays Center on December 5. The European singer doesn’t tour often, and his rich voice would put even the Scroogiest of us in the holiday spirit, so be sure not to miss this one.

Z100 Jingle Ball

OMG OMG OMG – Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and One Direction all under one roof? I think my 14-year-old self just blew a gasket. Check out this slew of pop-culture awesomeness at the Z100 Jingle Ball, held annually at Madison Square Garden, on December 7 this year.

New York Philharmonic Orchestra: Handel’s Messiah

The country’s largest symphony orchestra has an excellent lineup of holiday concerts. Taking place at Avery Fisher Hall, this year they’ll present “Handel’s Messiah,” an English-language composition and one of the best-knwn works in Western music.

New York Pops: Pink Martini “Joy To The World”

Step into Carnegie Hall and enjoy the New York Pop’s Pink Martini “Joy To the World,” an annual holiday celebration and multi-denominational holiday concert. Expect to hear songs from Pink Martini’s best-selling album, Joy To The World.
