The quintessential Christmas classic will be presented by Sun Valley Resort Thursday, December 23 at 7:30 pm at the Opera House. As with everything Sun Valley, the caliber of the show’s talent reaches far beyond our small town and will feature two highly acclaimed sopranos, Celena Shafer and Leslie Mauldin, well-known tenor John Mauldin, New York jazz pianist Paul Tillotson, long-time local favorite Joe Fos, and the Sun Valley Carolers just to name a few. The Third Annual Classical Christmas Concert will include excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, and holiday classics such as “O Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Silent Night.” A group of talented youngsters will join in “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” ushering in Jolly Old St. Nick. The Hatvani Chamber Ensemble will lend beautiful piano and string accompaniment. With musical direction from R.L. Rowsey and artistic and stage direction from Melodie Taylor-Mauldin the show will be a guaranteed and incredible feast for both eyes and ears! In recognition of Sun Valley’s 75th season, complimentary truffles, hot chocolate, coffee and tea will be served before the show and during intermission.
