Celebrate the most magical holiday season with a special Christmas Classical Kids Concert at Sottile Theatre, 44 George Street. Sing along to favorite holiday songs and listen as well-loved stories come to life with classical music.

Musicians of Chamber Music Charleston (Regina Helcher Yost, flute; Charles Messersmith, clarinet; Frances Hsieh, violin; Timothy O’Malley, cello) perform a variety of holiday music as actors from the Actors’ Theatre of South Carolina retell classic Christmas tales such as “Snowman at Christmas” and “The Night Before Christmas”. The audience also becomes part of the performance as they join in for such well loved holiday songs as “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” “Frosty the Snowman” and “Jingle Bells.”  We will even have a special visit from “Elsa” – brought to life by Charleston’s own Laura Ball – to perform a brand new arrangement of “Let It Go” from “Frozen.”   If we are lucky, it may even snow!
