Christmas at Belmont, the NPT original production of traditional and classical holiday music and carols performed by students of Belmont University’s School of Music at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, premieres locally tonight, Thursday, December 19 at 8:00 p.m. on NPT, and nationally tomorrow night, Friday, December 20 at 9:00 p.m. on PBS stations nationwide (including NPT again). Airing again on Christmas Eve on NPT and around the nation, the show this year is hosted by internationally renowned mezzo soprano Denyce Graves.
The show that is taped is over 90 minutes, and to create an hour-version for broadcast, some performances must inevitably be cut. But we have an early Christmas gift for you. We’ve taken most of the performances that we couldn’t fit and put them on our YouTube channel for you to enjoy and share with friends and family around the country. Watch them all here, and be sure to tune in tonight or during one of the additional broadcasts in the days ahead.
