Weekend In Entertainment: Musicals, Gray Holiday Party & The Singing Christmas Tree

Dec 12, 2019

By Gwendolyn Glenn

The holiday season is in full swing and that means lots of holiday events are on the agenda for this edition of Weekend In Entertainment. There's a musical performance, a holiday party. There's even a singing Christmas tree in the lineup. Joining "All Things Considered" host Gwendolyn Glenn to discuss these and other arts and cultural events is Katrina Louis, managing editor of QCity Metro. 

Gwendolyn Glenn: Hi, Katrina. 

Katrina Louis: Hey, Gwen. 


Glenn: Definitely a party with a cause. Yeah. And finally, there's the magic of Christmas and the Singing Christmas Tree.

Louis: So the Charlotte Symphony and Carolina Voices have joined together for the singing Christmas tree performance. So what makes this cool and different is that it's quintessential holiday songs and the singers are literally inside of a Christmas tree all the way to the top. And then there's an angel singing at the top. 

Glenn: I was wondering about that. How large is this Christmas tree? 

Louis: So I haven't actually been to this show, but I hear like it pretty much takes up the stage. So it's pretty tall. You know, the singers are actually inside of it. 

Glenn: Oh, wow, a vision came in my head. That's going to be a lot of fun. Sounds like it's gonna be a great event. 

Louis: Yeah. So that's at the Knight Theater and the show kicks off tomorrow night and will run through Sunday the 21st. 

Glenn: Sounds great. Thanks, Katrina. 

Louis: Thanks, Gwen.
