Members of the public who have made watching “Christmas at Belmont” a longstanding part of the holiday tradition now have the chance to experience the joy of this beloved event live and in-person.
This annual winter performanceis a cherished festivity at Belmont thatfeatures the musical diversity and rich talents of the Belmont School of Music.
Traditionally a televised event, this year tickets are open to the public and go on sale on Friday, October 21 at 10 a.m. CT. The concert will be hosted in the Fisher Center for Performing Arts at Belmont University.
“We are excited to offer ‘Christmas at Belmont’ tickets to the public for the first time this year,” Dean of the College of Music and Performing Arts Dr. Stephen Eaves said. “Past productions were presented in campus venues half the size of the Fisher Center, which limited our ability to offer tickets to the public. We are thrilled to offer two live performances of this special Christmas tradition to the people of Nashville in the amazing Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on the Belmont University campus.”
Nearly 600 student musicians will join the School of Music faculty to execute performances that feature traditional carols, classical masterworks, festive Christmas songs and holiday favorites like “Do You Hear What I Hear.” Thirteen student ensembles will perform traditional music as well as a variety of musical genres to include vocal jazz, pop, and bluegrass.
The recorded 2021 “Christmas at Belmont” performance will be broadcasted on Nashville Public Television for those who choose to enjoy the merriment from the comfort of their homes. Check local listings for broadcast times.
