The 150-voice First Pres choir will be featured, along with a Christmas at the Movies segment, a special version of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and a commissioned arrangement of “O Holy Night” for orchestra and choir with Sarikoki as the baritone soloist. 

There will be two shows on Dec. 11, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center, and available tickets range from $24 – $45. Tickets can be purchased online at PikesPeakCenter.com or in-person at the Pikes Peak Center Box Office.
