A major Christmas show has been announced for those of you fortunate enough to be in Nashville for Christmas, and who would want to be anywhere else? The iconic Oak Ridge Boys will perform their 27th annual Christmas show at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, on Friday, December 23.
The Hall of Famers also recently released their seventh Christmas album, known as “Celebrate Christmas”. This album contains several favorite Christmas songs and a few new ones, too.
The two hour performance will include 45 minutes of the Oaks most popular Hits including their Signature Song “Elvira.” Then, they will retake the stage to perform much of their new Christmas album.
“It’s almost two shows for the price of one,” Richard Sterban, the deep-voiced Bass Singer of the group explained. He is well known for his “oom-pa-pa-oom-pa-pa-mow-mow” behind “Elvira”.
Other members of the world famous Quartet include:
Duane Allen – Lead
Joe Bonsall – Tenor
William Lee Golden – Baritone
Featuring the 30,000 square foot, 1,844-seat Laura Turner Concert Hall, the Schermerhorn was named one of the North and South American Finalists for the Urban Land Institute’s Award For Excellence in 2009.
Shaped in a shoebox style, the Schermerhorn displays natural lighting, thirty double-paned clerestory windows, and intricate motifs including horses, coffee beans, and irises. The Mike Curb Family Education Hall, and the Martin Foundation Concert Organ, with its 3,568 pipes, 47 voices, 32-foot stops, and 64 ranks, are also contained in the symphony hall.
The Oak Ridge Boys will perform at 8pm.
