Belmont Opens Christmas at Belmont to Public

The longstanding holiday tradition now gives the public the chance to experience this beloved event live and in-person.  

The annual “Christmas at Belmont” winter performance is a cherished festivity hosted in the Fisher Center for Performing Arts at Belmont University. Traditionally a televised event, this year tickets for the two performances on December 3 – 4 are open to the public.

“We are excited to offer Christmas at Belmont tickets to the public for the first time this year,” Dean of the College of Music and Performing Arts Dr. Stephen Eaves said. “Past productions were presented in campus venues half the size of the Fisher Center, which limited our ability to offer tickets to the public.  We are thrilled to offer two live performances of this special Christmas tradition to the people of Nashville in the amazing Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on the Belmont University campus.” 

Nearly 600 student musicians will join the School of Music faculty to execute performances that feature traditional carols, classical masterworks, festive Christmas songs and holiday favorites like “Do You Hear What I Hear.” Thirteen student ensembles will perform traditional music as well as a variety of musical genres to include vocal jazz, pop and bluegrass.

The recorded 2021 “Christmas at Belmont” performance will be broadcasted on Nashville Public Television for those who choose to enjoy the merriment from the comfort of their homes. Check local listings for broadcast times. 

There will be two chances to see the performance on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 4 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets start at $28.50 and can be purchased here. For more information, visit belmont.edu.
