Singing is a big part of this group, and the audience will be invited to sing along on such classics as "Jingle Bells" and Silent Night." Remi Alexander will help the audience sing "The Twelve Days of Christmas," always a lot of fun, and Teo Ariola will lead the sing along on "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town." Rachel Kritz and Linda Bostwick will perform a duet on "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and Sita Milchev will join the bells on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." A highlight of the concert is sure to be "Pat-a-Pan" with Cyndy Solomon joining the bell ringers on alto recorder and Bill Halderman on tambourine.
Santa Claus will be at this concert and will be handing out candy canes to kids of all ages.
