The Gifts of Christmas

As part of The Magic Season, Bellevue Chamber Chorus presents The Gifts of Christmas, a family holiday concert celebrating the gifts of joy, hope, love, peace, and fun. The chorus will perform both familiar and lesser-known holiday songs, with seasonal readings sprinkled among the music.
   Enjoy favorite songs like "Do You Hear What I Hear," and "The Twelve Days of Christmas." For "Little Tree," the chorus will be joined by a young ballerina who dances the story of a child's conversation with a tiny Christmas tree.
   Another highlight will be the chorus' enactment of the lively "The Shepherds' Chorus" from the popular Christmas opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors." Throughout the program the audience can sing along with favorite carols and songs including "Joy to the World," "Silent Night," "Frosty the Snowman," and "Jingle Bells."
