As a mom of 2 boys, we have plenty of days that are filled with sports, dirt and video games, but I also make an effort to expose my boys theatre and art as well. I want them to appreciate some of the finer things in life, even if we're on a budget. This weekend, A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE CONCERT, is airing on our local WHYY station, and I hope you get a chance to check it out with your kids.

I was sent a copy of the DVD to preview and my 5-year-old and I loved it. A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE CONCERT is a new production of the classic tale, which will be airing on WHYY this Sunday, December 22nd at 1:30pm.  When we first turned on the DVD, I never expected it to grab the attention of my kindergartner, but he was mesmerized by the singers, narrator and the orchestra. We watched the whole performance together and really enjoyed it.

It's the classic Dickens tale performed as a dramatic concert featuring a full symphony orchestra, choir, rhythm section, a narrator, and three soloists. It has musical styles that range from classical and Broadway, to blues and gospel.

If you have WHYY, I encourage you to check out A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE CONCERT this Sunday at 1:30pm.  It is absolutely beautiful and you get to experience this classic ghost story as you’ve never heard it before!
