Christmas at Belmont: a classic Nashville tradition
The Belmont University School of Music and Nashville Public Television will produce Christmas at Belmont at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 25, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
This year, internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano opera singer Denyce Graves will host the popular holiday concert. Broadcast on PBS, Christmas at Belmont will feature diverse musical ensembles, from musical theatre to jazz, bluegrass, and percussion ensembles. The Belmont University Symphony Orchestra and Belmont Chorale will also perform Christmas favorites.
For over two decades, Christmas at Belmont has been a holiday favorite in Nashville. Every other year, the concert is taped, and then broadcast for two years. This will be the sixth television taping for national broadcast on PBS. The years when it’s not taped in the Schermerhorn, the performance takes place in the Massey Concert Hall on Belmont’s campus.
Christmas at Belmont has become such a popular Nashville tradition, tickets for the 7 p.m. taping have already sold out, but Belmont students, faculty and staff may request up to two tickets to the dress rehearsal at 3 p.m. on today.
Tickets are not available to the general public.
