Review for the Chattanooga Boys Choir Singing Christmas Tree:

The program will include more than 100 members of the Chattanooga Boys Choir’s five component choirs, as well as guest artists from the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestra (Gary Wilkes, director), Ballet Tennessee (Anna van Cura, director), and the Metropolitan Bells handbell ensemble (Gary Bynum, director). In all, the stage will be graced with over 200 performers providing a splendid display of holiday music and dance for all ages to enjoy.

The theme of this year’s Singing Christmas Tree is “On a Silent Night” – commemorates the 200th anniversary of the popular holiday carol “Silent Night,” which was written in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria. Audience members at this year’s Singing Christmas Tree will hear the carol in several versions, including a dramatic music introduction telling the story of how the song came to be written.
