Praise for Holiday Cheers 2016:

“[A] wonderfully fun evening with all of the joy of the holidays with a little bit of the class.”

“The night had all of the charm of your typical Christmas concert, there was a lighter mood and plenty of opportunities for the audience to sing along. The one thing missing though was the children. This resulted in a more mature Christmas experience which was refreshing. It gave grown-ups the chance to enjoy the holiday for themselves.”
