Imagine a 35-foot Christmas tree on stage complete with ornaments, lights, and… 150 singers, accompanied by a live orchestra! This is the first thing you think of when you hear The Singing Christmas Tree. It’s our city’s most spectacular Christmas show, a heartwarming, annual tradition for thousands of families.
From the website: Every year, The Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree Foundation donates all net proceeds to local charities, organizations and children in need. In addition to working with established local and global non-profits, the Foundation also supports individual causes throughout the City as a way of bringing Christmas year round to children in need through gifts, food and music education.
This year’s show runs Dec. 19-22.
I attended the show for the first time last year and was truly blown away. These singers are so talented. The stories are so inspirational. It’s incredibly festive and you get warm fuzzies knowing you’re supporting fantastic causes helping those in need (this year proceeds from the show go to support Santa’s Anonymous and the Christmas Bureau).
So let’s make the Singing Christmas Tree a part of your holiday tradition! I’m so happy to help spread the word about this fantastic event – I’m giving away two pairs of tickets for opening night!
