Tickets On Sale Friday For Boys Choir Singing Christmas Tree Dec. 7

Monday, October 28, 2019

The Chattanooga Boys Choir Singing Christmas Tree, one of Chattanooga’s longest-running and most treasured holiday traditions, will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Tivoli Theater, with family-friendly 12 and 5:30 p.m. showtimes.

Review for the 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, Ballet Tennessee (Anna van Cura, director), and the Metropolitan Bells handbell ensemble (Gary Bynum, director). The choir’s special guest performer will be Scott Coulter, a Chattanooga Boys Choir alum who has been honored as one of Broadway’s top performers in both theater and cabaret productions. 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 “Christmas on Broadway,” as stage veteran Scott Coulter joins the choir in presenting holiday pieces made famous on some of the most musical theater productions. “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music, “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” from Miracle on 34th Street, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” from Miracle on 34th Street and “Toyland” from Babes in Toyland are just a few of the staples from Broadway holiday repertoire that will be featured.

Other pieces performed by the choir will feature a number of traditional carols, holiday music from around the world, and several holiday favorites. Included on the program will be excerpts from Camille Saint-Seans’ Christmas Oratorio, Wayne Bisbee’s setting of “Adeste Fideles,” and a special setting of “All Is Well” by Michael W. Smith. In addition, the choir will share settings of “Al Shlosha D’Varim” in Hebrew and Cristi Cary Miller’s setting of “Dona Nobis Pacem” in Latin. The Singing Christmas Tree program will also feature several holiday favorites including “O Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” “Christmastime Is Here” and several other selections that will be the perfect start to everyone’s holiday season.

Tickets available on Friday through the Tivoli Box office, online or charge by phone 757-5580. They will be $18, $20 and $40 plus fees.

The Migrant Children Should Be Welcomed With Open Arms

My greatest concern for the migrant children is they don't be mistreated or abused. Being separated from their families must be traumatic enough. They don't deserve the added trauma of being mistreated and abused. They should be welcomed with open arms. Don't worry about our own precious children. They'll get to be exposed to another language, another culture. Children ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: A ‘Full Throttle’ Finish

Alabama football coach Bear Bryant had a pre-game ritual where just before a game, he’d take his quarterbacks on a short walk around the courthouse square in whatever town the Tide was playing. Bryant wouldn’t say much, and the players wouldn’t say a word unless they were called on. The first time Joe Namath took the fabled walk, he purposefully trailed Coach by a step or two. Bryant ...
