This year’s annual Savannah Children’s Choir Christmas Concert is a particularly special one as it marks ten years of tradition and community.
“We are singing the Savannah Children’s Choir greatest hits,” says Executive Director Roger Moss. “What’s exciting for audiences is that we have singalongs—it’s a very interactive concert, and it’s a lot of fun.”
Expect a mix of traditional carols, jazz, classical, and more.
The Christmas concert has become such an annual favorite, Moss even has a snow globe of the yearly poster’s artwork sitting on his desk.
“It’s so much fun, and great memories,” he says. “You can’t help but sit there and think, ‘Wow, I remember that.’ It’s the music that takes you to different places in your life: the first time you saw the Charlie Brown Christmas special. The sound of children at Christmas is very special; it’s beyond children singing. The children are so talented, and the sounds that they make are so gloriously musical, you close your eyes and it’s idyllic.”
SCC has more in store for their birthday celebration, including February’s One Small Voice award and the official ten-year spring concert celebration in May.
The organization is offering several tiers of ticket pricing, with $5 admission for students (including college!) and children and $10 tickets for adults.
“We want more people to experience an art form that, historically, started for the people,” shares Moss. “And this year, we are doing that kind of pricing for all of our events.”
Moss advises that Sunday’s event is the perfect way to get familiar with the SCC.
“This is a great intro concert,” he says. “One thing we’ve always been known for is the children’s ability to sing a variety of music—so they can go from singing Vivaldi’s Gloria to singing jazz! Our children are amazing.”
Sunday, December 6, 3 p.m., $50 VIP, $25 reserved, $10 general admission, $5 student/child, all-ages
