With Christmas right around the corner, I become a stickler about what gets watched on television. On the radio we tune into Christmas music and I love finding Christmas specials and holiday programming to get my family in a festive mood! Lately it has been harder and harder to find Christmas programming with the exception of Christmas Eve.
Then I found out that A Christmas Carol- The Concert was going to be on WHYY on Sunday, December 22nd at 1:30 pm EST. Yippee! And that I was able to preview the special beforehand. No bah-humbugs about it, we were ready to view!
Here is the synopsis:
A Christmas Carol – The Concert, is the classic Dickens tale performed as a dramatic concert featuring a full symphony orchestra, choir, rhythm section, a Narrator, and three soloists. With a brand new score by Bob Christianson and Alisa Hauser, A Christmas Carol – The Concert has musical styles that range from classical and Broadway, to blues and gospel. Hear and see this classic ghost story as you’ve never heard it before!
Your family will love it. The music ranges from sentimental to jolly and covered musical styles that everyone in my family loved, with all our varying tastes. I relished listening to the full orchestra and my kids enjoyed watching it as a family. If you are looking for a Christmas special for your family to enjoy this weekend make sure to tune in! Merry Christmas to you and yours and may your holiday be joyous and full of love!
