As if there wasn’t already enough to see and do during the holiday season at Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida, a brand new Sounds of the Season Concert Series has been added to the already-stellar lineup of festive events this year!
A talented lineup of performers will be gracing the stage at the St. Augustine Atrium right in the heart of Gaylord Palms and tickets for each concert will include a special visit to the world famous ICE! attraction after the performance.
The Sounds of the Season Concert Series lineup includes:
“Christmas in Every Language” featuring Gaylord Palms STARS
Wednesday, December 6th and Tuesday, December 12th
“Christmas in Every Language” is a multicultural musical celebration of Christmastime, featuring eight of Central Florida’s highly talented vocalists who have performed all over the world. Their cultural backgrounds are as varied as their talents and experience, but it is their voices uniquely blending together that will leave audiences in awe.
Orlando Gay Chorus
Wednesday, December 13th
The Orlando Gay Chorus consists of 100+ gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual and transgender members, all thankful to continue their mission of changing hearts and minds in Central Florida and throughout the world — “singing the world to a better place.” Their musical artistry showcases the pride they have in themselves, offering the world a chance to see beyond headlines and contentious social issues to build bridges of understanding, equality and love.
“Amahl and the Night Visitors” performed by Opera Orlando, Orlando Philharmonic and the Orlando Ballet
Wednesday, December 20th
Gian Carlo Menotti’s Christmas opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors” was the first opera written for television in 1951, made to entertain a wide audience. This special 45-minute performance features a precocious, young crippled boy who is visited by three strangers who happen to be the Three Kings on their way to see the Christ child. A charming and heartwarming story that appeals to the whole family, the opera is sung in English and set in the little town of Bethlehem. This special production at Gaylord Palms features a full cast from Opera Orlando with a 12-member adult chorus plus five youth chorus members, along with original choreography from two dancers with the Orlando Ballet and a chamber ensemble from the Orlando Philharmonic.
Thursday, December 21st
Popular Central Florida a cappella group Voctave features members who have performed all over the world with multiple artists and in countless venues. Formed in 2015, Voctave has been recording and performing throughout the country. The group has recorded with artists including Kirstin Maldonado of Pentatonix and former Avalon member Jody McBrayer. They are releasing their second Christmas album this holiday.
