More than 800 Belmont University student musicians and singers, including nine from Cobb County, along with faculty and the Nashville Children’s Choir will perform in the nationally televised airing of “Christmas at Belmont,” produced by Nashville Public Television.

Cobb performers in the broadcast include Caroline Batch and Megan Sargent, both of Acworth; Robert Plasket, Margaret Chafee and Christopher Chaput, all of Kennesaw; Margaret Adams of Mableton; Ryan Hartman of Marietta; and Andrew Fleming and Sara Burns, both of Smyrna.

Hosted by internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, the annual production of traditional carols, classical masterworks, world music and light-hearted seasonal favorites will premiere on NPT at 9 p.m. on Thursday. The nationwide premiere will be 10 p.m. on Friday with an encore broadcast at 8 p.m. on Dec. 24. This is the 11th consecutive year “Christmas at Belmont” has been seen by a  national audience on PBS.

This year’s program will feature the University Symphony Orchestra, Belmont Chorale, Percussion Ensemble, Musical Theatre, Jazz Band and Bluegrass Ensemble, as well as mass choir. The performance will have both classic sacred holiday music and festive seasonal songs.
