Christmas is a time for traditions. Some are new traditions started in recent years and some are traditions from our childhood that still burn bright in our memories like the embers of a dimming fire. We each have things that make the holiday special to us whether it is the smell of a fresh pine tree in the living room, matching Christmas jammies, or the taste of grandma’s homemade fudge. These treasures warm our hearts and make us feel like we are home regardless of where we may be. Come celebrate with us this season as we highlight the things that make Christmas such a special time of year and bring joy and hope to each of our hearts. We promise laughter, entertainment and a heartwarming experience you won’t soon forget. – From Forte Show Choir
Forte! Tri-City Youth Choir in “That’s Christmas to Me!” is at Southridge High School Friday, December 7th @ 7 pm and Saturday, December 8th @ 2 pm and 7 pm. For tickets, visit yourtcyc.com or purchase at the door. This is a show for the entire family! I can only imagine the amount of effort and practice that goes into a production of this scale. I enjoyed Friday evening’s performance and wasn’t surprised that they brought the house to their feet again just like their show last spring!
Your family will love Christmas classics like “Joy to the World” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as well as some contemporary arrangements of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Mister Santa.” What impressed me this show was the attention to detail in the costumes, props and lighting. I loved the humor in “Variation on Fa-La-La!” Joseph Haws is amazing on the piano!
“That’s Christmas to Me” stands apart from typical holiday entertainment shows in that there is a definite Christian message throughout culminating in a live, choral nativity complete with the holy family, shepherds and angels!
What a wonderful way to provide a wholesome and educational opportunity for Tri-City Youth! You can reserve your tickets by visiting yourtcyc.com as well as learn about their spring show May 4th and 6th “A Million Dreams” and their Benefit Concert and Silent Auction to support the TCYC Building Fund May 10th.
