Christmas means music – choirs in churches, carolers on the street, performances in theaters. But due to the pandemic, we’re facing a season in which musicians, and their music, are stuck indoors.
The people at Town Hall Theater have cooked up a solution. We’ve gathered together videos of the area’s most popular musicians under the title Holiday Jukebox, which will be streaming online, with the proceeds benefitting the Addison County Food Shelf at HOPE. The Holiday Jukebox will be available from noon on December 24 thru midnight on December 26. A link will be sent to you when you purchase a ticket.
For the General $10 fee you and your household can watch it as much as you like. The Generous ticket price of $25 adds an extra donation to the cause. “I can imagine families watching it, and then tuning in again to listen while they’re preparing Christmas dinner,” says Doug Anderson, Artistic Director.
Anderson has put together an all-star line-up that will offer a wide range of musical styles. On the bill:
The Clint Bierman Family Francois Clemmons The Middlebury Congregational Church Choir The Bengsons Dayve Huckett & Molly McEachen Mindy Hinsdale Bickford Maiden Vermont Josh Panda and Ashley Betton Honey in the Hive – The Bolton/Munkres Family Band Nate Gusakov
“Everybody wins,” says Anderson. “The local musical community will come right into your living room, and the event will help stock the pantry at the Food Shelf. And, I think, we’ll regain some of that sense of community we always feel so strongly during the holidays.”
$10 - proceeds benefit the Addison County Food Shelf at H.O.P.E.
