2017 Singing Christmas Tree Spectacular
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Bethany Choir and Orchestra presents the 2017 Singing Christmas Tree Spectacular in eight presentations during the first two weekends of December. This 43rd annual edition of the Spectacular rings in the Christmas holidays, proclaiming the true meaning of Christmas … the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The 60-voice Choir, adorned as ornaments on a 25 foot tall Christmas tree, will be accompanied by the 18-piece Bethany Orchestra. For this year’s musical, the Spectacular is returning to “The Nativity Symphony”, with songs familiar and new, arranged and orchestrated by Bradley Knight, now the principal pianist and arranger/orchestrator for the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.
The Singing Christmas Tree Spectacular will be done in four musical segments: The Proclamation of Christmas, The Advent of Christmas, The Celebration of Christmas, and The Glory of Christmas. Enhancing the music will be lighting on the Tree, “dancing” to the beat of the music, in addition to “environmental projection” on the walls, complementing the mood and focus of the music. In addition, The Bethany Drama Department, under the direction of Marilene Allen (Red Door Theatre), will re-enact the nativity scene with Mary and Joseph with Jesus, the angels, shepherds, and wise men. The Spectacular becomes a feast for the eyes and ears, and brings the Advent of the Christ-child alive once again to all who attend, regardless of age!
Presentations are Friday, December 1, at 7 pm, Saturday, December 2, at 6 pm, and Sunday, December 3, at 3 pm and again at 6 pm. The schedule will be the same for the second weekend, December 8-10. All seats are free with no individual reserved seating. Seating for large groups can be arranged by calling the church office. There will be signing for the deaf in each presentation, and a well-staffed nursery for infants will also be available. Bethany Assembly of God is located at the corner of Rt. 57 at Main Street in Agawam, MA.
