Come and enjoy an array of holiday favorites such as The Little Drummer Boy and White Christmas as well as two wonderful stories of American Christmases past. The centerpiece of the concert created by Phillip Grow, Red Telephone, is a short musical play that tells the story of the origin of the NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) Tracks Santa program, which since the 1950s has been following Santa’s progress from the North Pole for children everywhere. Another highlight of this year’s concert will be the narration of Longfellow’s Christmas by UF President W. Kent Fuchs.
