Come see Carolina Voices' MainStage Choir perform an array of holiday music during "The Singing Christmas Tree" Dec. 14 -15 at Ovens Auditorium. 

What’s the holiday season without a few Yuletide carols? All of the various sounds and voices that remind us of the holiday season are part of what makes this time of year so special.

The music of holiday cheer will take center stage during the 59th Annual Singing Christmas Tree performance, Dec. 14-15 at Ovens Auditorium. This year’s them is “The Voices of Christmas.”

“This year’s performance of ‘The Singing Christmas Tree’ features a variety of voices, sounds and characters that help us recall the joy of Christmas,” said Peter Leo, artistic director for Carolina Voices. “From voices singing to brass proclaiming, from drummers drumming to character’s reading, the audience will hear sounds, some familiar, some perhaps new, that set the state for the this most wonderful time of year.

Continuing its legacy as the first Singing Christmas Tree production in the country, Carolina Voices’ MainStage Choir perform an array of holiday music on a 32-foot decorated Christmas tree as some of the area’s most talented performers share their talents of song and dance throughout the show.

The show will feature holiday classics such as “Little Drummer Boy,” “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “Baby, it’s Cold Outside.” In keeping with tradition, the performance will close with “Silent Night.”

Two special performances for children will be held Dec. 14. Lasting just one hour, “The Singing Christmas Tree for KIDS” show is a great way to introduce children to the performing arts. Adding to the fun, two events - “Lunch with Santa” and “Cookies & Milk with Santa” – will be held at times coinciding with the KIDS Tree performance schedules.
