Back for the fifth year, Hallelujah Project returns with the family-friendly mix of holiday classics and seasonal favorites designed to delight audiences of all ages and kick off the season in magical, musical style. Make a musical holiday tradition with your family and friends at Hallelujah Project 5.
Artistic Director JoAnne Wasserman carefully chooses repertoire to ensure it will be approachable for young audience members and yet retain the musical integrity to be fully enjoyed by those of more sophisticated musical tastes. Ms. Wasserman will lead the Santa Barbara Choral Society and Orchestra in this program of holiday merriment, featuring local Children’s’ Chorus, local youth symphony players, and young dancers. And, as has become traditional, narration of the charmingly orchestrated version of Clement Moore’s beloved holiday classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by a celebrity narrator yet to be revealed. Stay tuned to find out who it will be this year! Previous narrators include comedienne Fanny Flagg, actress Stephanie Zimbalist, and day-time star Allison Sweeney and the iconic singer/actress, Shirley Jones. Youngsters (and those young at heart) should keep a sharp eye out for a cameo appearance by that Jolly Old Elf, himself!
