A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY
Join award winning Broadway singer and recording artist Emily Drennan on A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY this holiday season. As it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas outside, it begins to feel a lot like Christmas inside. With selections also featuring a chorus and a local dance ensemble, Emily, who is joined by her mother Patti Drennan, takes you on a journey through the first snow flakes and Christmas lists, through Santa's arrival and being home for Christmas. From a Bing Crosby medley to sacred favorites such as O Holy Night and Mary, Did You Know, this show is the perfect balance between old and new. This Christmas season: sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. This dynamic duo is also releasing A Mother Daughter Christmas album this 2016 holiday season featuring selections from A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY.
