‘Christmas at Belmont’ Showcases Belmont’s Musical Talent

Melindakids.LR.jpgFrom the first notes of “Festival Fanfare of Christmas” to the parting strains of “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” the 2007 “Christmas at Belmont” holiday concert again provided undeniable proof of Belmont School of Music students’ talent.
Taped live in front of a full house Monday night in the Laura Turner Concert Hall of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the annual performance featured Belmont alumnus Melinda Doolittle (’99) as host for the evening, and she also performed four selections, including “Some Children See Him” with the Nashville Children’s Choir and “Joy to the World” with the combined choirs, University Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Sextet.
The taped special will air nationally on PBS Mon., Dec. 24, at 9 p.m. Central after its local premiere on Nashville Public Television (NPT) Thurs., Dec. 20, at 8 p.m. Central. The television production was made possible by generous gifts from The Beaman Family Foundation and The Jack C. Massey Foundation. For additional photos from the evening, click here.
