Jingle All the Way: A Virtual Holiday Concert
December 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hope Forman’s Jingle All The Way Virtual Holiday Concert featuring children from Windsor Essex County premieres on YouTube on Friday, December 4, 2020.
Hope Forman, performer, choreographer, music theatre instructor, is creating a free children’s virtual holiday concert in the hopes of spreading cheer to seniors and to the greater Windsor Essex community this holiday season!
Hope, who is a University of Windsor Bachelor of Arts (Music) grad, now completing her final year at the faculty of Education, has found a way for young artists to be able to connect with the community even during these most challenging times. Since children cannot perform in person at retirement and long term care homes this year, she is editing and producing a virtual performance which will provide them with a wonderful way to reach out and share their inner sparkle with everyone in the community.
This virtual concert will feature beloved holiday classics performed by over twenty talented children ranging in ages from 8-16, from Leamington, Kingsville, Harrow, Windsor and even one all the way from Alberta. This magical creation is intended to be a fun sing-a-long which will have everyone bursting out spontaneously in song. Hope has been putting together virtual performances since the onset of the pandemic utilizing the talents of children she’s encountered over the years as an instructor. These fabulous, creative, musical theatre loving children, have once again managed to exceed all expectations when approached to perform. The children were super excited right from the start, finding their holiday spirit early in late October when they began recording their performances from the safety of their homes. These extraordinary children have gone all out, some decked in costumes and using props they have created all on their own. This concert will definitely be a treat sweeter than any candy cane ever tasted!
This fun virtual holiday concert is free and open for all to enjoy! It will be available on YouTube beginning on Friday December 4th at 6pm at https://youtu.be/PKhb3KltoEk
During these most challenging and potentially very lonely times, Hope believes the arts prove to be more essential than ever. The children’s inner sparkle and holiday spirit will prove to be contagious, showing us all that we can shine through whatever challenges may lie ahead for us this holiday season, and always.
