The tent may be all tucked away in hibernation for winter, but the Blue Canvas Orchestra is brimming with the magic of Christmas. Hearken back on old memories with songs the Blue Canvas Orchestra has been performing for years, and hear some new songs too. There’ll be holiday classics, instrumentals, and maybe even an audience sing-a-long.

The Blue Canvas Orchestra has played a lot of shows under the big blue tent over the years. Some of their most cherished arrangements, however, have happened at Christmastime. When the magic of Big Top combines with the magic of Christmas, you can bet your last sugar cookie the good cheer will be flowing! So sit back and enjoy while music decorates the air like so much tinsel.
