Since 2001, Concordia Conservatory has produced its annual Community Holiday Musical as a tuition-free community outreach program. Funded through grants, foundations, and friends of the Conservatory, the program offers a theater experience with solid production values and high standards for a community cast ages 8 to 22.

The 2020 production will be a new format – a filmed movie musical to be released on Saturday, December 19. The new format is in response to the Covid-19 pandemic in lieu of a live performance.

❆     ❆    ❆    ❆    ❆    ❆

When word gets out that there will be no Concordia Holiday Community Musical due to the COVID pandemic, current and past performers flock back to campus to reminisce about past shows.  Through performing their favorite musical numbers, they try to determine the “best” holiday musical, and their quest leads them to the “greatest story ever told.”  Whether on stage or on the screen, the show must go on!
