Students will be featured in solos and ensembles along with faculty as they sing and dance on the Metropolis stage to music celebrating the holiday season. This cabaret includes seasonal favorites, including songs like “Happy Holidays”, “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”, “Hanukkah, Festival of Light”, “Let it Snow”, “Jingle Bell Rock”, “White Christmas”, and more!
