Shelean Newman, Perry Danos, Fisk Jubilee Singers star in GrandVista's Holiday Extravaganza
Yuletide revelry in Nashville hits a high note and becomes a bit more festive Tuesday, December 8, as GrandVista Music (GVM) hosts its first-ever Holiday Extravaganza at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center's James K. Polk Theatre.
David Alford, former artistic director of Tennessee Repertory Theatre, will emcee the event that will feature the entire roster of GrandVista's artists, including the 30-piece Orchestra Mastrangelo, Perry Danos, Marty Raybon, Shelean Newman and the GrandVista Kids. The Extravaganza will also feature the legendary Fisk Jubilee Singers in a special guest appearance, and the only Nashville performance this year of David Alford and Paul Carrol Binkley's nostalgic treatment of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory.
Binkley, the present of GVM, and Jo-An Fox, GVM's director of marketing and artist development, are producing and directing the event.
Described as "a joyous occasion for the entire family," Holiday Extravaganza: The GrandVista Christmas Show is expected to be a sell-out, according to GVM's Tiffany Duquette. Tickets are $34.50 (children under 12 are $20; and groups of 10 or more can get a special $30 ticket price). Tickets are available at the TPAC box office at (615) 782-5050, or online at www.tpac.org.
