Make Merry with Music!

Our A Christmas Carol Pre-Show Choir and Ensemble Program has been part of our holday tradition for 14 years. Free to all A Christmas Carol ticket-holders, these choir performances occur just prior to curtain. Since 2005, audiences have enjoyed sounds of the season from over 200 choirs!

This year, we’re keeping the tradition alive by offering virtual performances from a few of our favorite community choirs and ensembles. Enjoy our 2020 choir and ensemble videos as well as pictures from the live, pre-show program in 2019!
