7:30-8:45pm Formal program (In-person and Virtual) in Calderwood Studio

Experience the magic of this season with GBH Music's Holiday Spectacular, an enchanting evening featuring some of the best musical acts in Massachusetts. The event offers families a front-row seat to an unparalleled lineup of performers, including The Renaissance Men, a Boston-based ensemble of eight male voices known for their close-knit a cappella harmonies; Blue Heron, a Renaissance and medieval vocal ensemble led by Scott Metcalfe which will bring audiences back to the sounds of the earliest holiday celebrations; pianist John Paul McGee, who will perform holiday favorites in his signature "Gospejazzical" genre; the angelic singers of the Handel and Haydn Youth Chorus Chamber Choir led by conductor Alyson Greer Espinosa; and members of the triumphant and jubilant New England Brass Band led by Music Director Mark Olson.

One of the most accessible events for families this season, GBH Music's Holiday Spectacular, invites music lovers to be part of a live studio production inside GBH's Calderwood Studio, which will glow with festive cheer, including a dramatic snowscape of light designed to herald the start of winter. Musical selections will transport listeners into an unforgettable journey into the holiday spirit with everything from traditional carols to new compositions, each capturing the harmony and passion of this special time of year. WCRB Classical 99.5's charismatic morning drive host, Laura Carlo, and afternoon drive host, Greg Ferrisi, will team up for the first time as the live presenters of this one-of-a-kind holiday experience.

Join the virtual event, from 7:30-9pm EST. This event is free, but registration is required.
