LIVE MUSICAL VIGNETTES

Scenes from the first Act of the musical “Savior of the World” are performed every 15 minutes. The scenes have an amazing spiritual impact and depict events surrounding the Savior’s birth.

CHRISTMAS MUSIC

Local performers provide Christ centered Christmas music during the entire event. Approximately 16 different vocal or instrumental groups will perform. Videos with musical performances from prior years are included on the Concert Schedule page.
