Central Arkansas Acapella Choruses Unite for a Holiday Concert Extravaganza
The fun starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the UA-Pulaski Tech Center for Humanities and Arts Building Auditorium in North Little Rock and continues at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10 at Woodlands Auditorium in Hot Springs Village.
Dear Santa, I Can Explain, part of the Holidays in Harmony series, will bring everybody’s favorite movie and story book villains to life as they try to convince Santa that they don’t deserve a spot on his naughty list, while the three award-winning Central Arkansas choruses sing a capella versions of holiday favorites in the uniquely American barbershop style.
This holiday extravaganza will also offer wintery treats, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a raffle.
Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for children 15 and under. They can be purchased at www.arkansasacapella.com.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Open Arms Shelter, a 24-bed facility in Lonoke that provides housing to children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
