Stream: Provo City Christmas Concerts


Christmas is almost over and it’s time to mothball all the Christmas tunes soon. It’s strange that we anticipate Xmas for at least four weeks, but on the eve of the 26th of December there’s an abrupt ending. One day later we start with all the preparations for New Year’s Eve. We are officially done with Christmas for another year! But hold on. Provided that the end of the world isn’t near and there’ll be another holiday season it makes sense to bookmark the Provo City Christmas Concerts playlist on YouTube for next year or even purchase the CD, which supports Sub for Santa, a Christmas charity that provides gifts for children, elderly, and disabled in the Utah County area. Local musicians from Utah have recorded new renditions of Christmas classics and many versions are quite remarkable. Joshua James for example, a singer-songwriter we’ve featured in the past, delivers a haunting version of We Three Kings, Madilyn Paige & Stephen Nelson contribute a classy interpretation of The First Noel, The National Parks accounts for the original folk song It’s Christmas, and I Like You. Auld Lang Syne, performed by Bat Manors, is another track that’s a perfect fit for end of the year celebrations. Christmas might be almost over, but these Provo City Christmas Concerts are definitely worth keeping in mind for next year’s Christmastime.
