Christmas at The Acorn

Thursday, Dec. 23 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


Mark down Thursday, December 23 as the real start of your 2021 Christmas! Harbor Country Opera out-does itself again in its seventeenth annual Christmas at the Acorn. The Thursday before Christmas, founder Robert Swan will bring together five of the finest singers you could wish to hear, including Acorn favorites tenor John Concepcion and soprano Kimberly Jones.

Swan says-"Each Christmas we try to find fresh new songs people haven't heard before or favorites that we have somehow missed." You would have to look far to find the eclectic concoction of humor and beauty to be found Thursday evening the 23nd at the Acorn. From tenor John Concepcion's haunting rendition of Balulalow, accompanied on the harp by Ramona Kim, to a couple of rarely heard medieval Christmas motets, there is truly something for everyone. Founder Robert Swan will also sing The Christmas Song- Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire!

As usual, there are plenty of opportunities for the audience to join in song, with selections like Silent Night and White Christmas!

Bring the whole family!

Enjoy Heavenly Christmas Music!

Music is good for the soul...and so is Laughter. Great Christmas music, beautifully sung...generous helpings of laughter, with perhaps a touch of mulled wine or hot buttered rum, and a special sense of community that never fails to brighten the season—this is what HCO’s Christmas is all about.
