One night only! It’s the most wonderful time of the year – especially for this community favorite and family tradition! Many Annapolitans kick off the season with this concert, which features a sleigh full of holiday cheer provided by the Annapolis Chorale, Chamber Orchestra, and Artistic Director J. Ernest Green, along with special musical guests!
Two wonderful guest artists join the festivities this year. Pianist, composer, performer, and on-stage music director for Netflix’ The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Mark Berman returns to offer his amazing holiday arrangements and vibrant piano playing. He has composed and played for Sex and the City (think of the ubiquitous opening theme song), Nurse Jackie, Royal Pains, and many other shows. Mr. Berman has worked with a who’s who of music, including Carole King, Hugh Jackman, Aretha Franklin and has performed at Carnegie Hall and the legendary Rainbow Room, among other famous venues.
Back by popular demand, veteran Broadway performer Bernard Dotson returns as our Celebration of Christmas vocalist! Most recently seen on stage as Noah “Horse” T. Simmons in The Full Monty, Bernard has performed on Broadway in Ragtime, Finian’s Rainbow, Chicago, Dream Girls, Sweet Smell Of Success, and many more! No stranger to Live Arts, Bernard is thrilled to be back for this year’s Celebration of Christmas!
