Christmas Music 2012
Broadcast Date: December 23, 2012
Every year around this time we bring you a different kind of Tennessee This Week. Instead of pundits and politicians, our special Christmas episode features sounds of the season performed by local school choirs.
For the 2012 Christmas special, we're honored to bring you performances by students from Central and South-Doyle High Schools. The Central High School Bobcat Company and the Select Choraliers shared their holiday production with an audience of hundred at the Tennessee Theatre during the December installment of the James A. Dick "Mighty Musical Monday" concert series. The groups are led by Beckye Justice Thomas, who has served as CHS Choral Director for nearly 30 years.
For a more intimate performance, the South-Doyle High School Singers allowed our cameras into the chorus room where they performed a selection of Christmas numbers on the day before their holiday concert. Our thanks to Choral Director John Maples for making it possible.
Our Tennessee This Week episode only allowed for about a half-hour of music. So with this website we're bringing you the full performances from both groups. We hope you enjoy the spirit of the season and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
