Grammy-winning musician Michael W. Smith and celebrated gospel artist CeCe Winans are the guest artists for the 2019 "Christmas At Belmont" holiday concert recorded in Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The festive production features nearly 800 musicians and performers, including Belmont University students, Belmont School of Music faculty and the Nashville Children’s Choir.
Among the groups to be featured in this year’s edition of "Christmas At Belmont" are the University Symphony Orchestra, Belmont Chorale, Percussion Ensemble, Musical Theatre, Jazz Ensemble and Bluegrass Ensemble, as well as mass choir.
The performance includes both classic holiday music such as “Joy to the World” and “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” as well as festive seasonal songs like “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and “White Christmas.”
“'Christmas At Belmont' is one of our favorite projects here at NPT,” said Kevin Crane, president and CEO of Nashville Public Television. “Working with the talented students of Belmont’s School of Music, as well as the dedicated faculty and stellar guest hosts, is a highlight of the holiday season. This year, with the spotlight on Music City after Ken Burns’ Country Music, we are especially pleased to bring this Nashville tradition to our fellow PBS stations.”
Belmont University President Dr. Bob Fisher said Belmont is delighted to have Winans and Smith, both former Belmont trustees, serve as guest performers for this year’s concert:
“These artists have been longtime supporters of the University and our students,” he said. “We’re incredibly grateful for our partnership with Nashville Public Television that brings the tremendous talent of our world-class School of Music to a national audience.”
