Let Music Fill the Air!
By Judy Newell
The holiday season is upon us, and some of San Miguel de Allende’s top vocalists will entertain on Tuesday, December 15, and Wednesday, December 16, at the San Miguel Playhouse. Home for the Holidays—A Musical Holiday Treat begins at 6pm with carolers entertaining at a holiday craft bazaar outside the theater prior to the performance. Holiday favorites range from the traditional “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays,” to the jazzy “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and the humorous “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch.” There will be songs in Spanish “A La Nanita Nana;” French, “Cantique de Noël;” Hebrew, “Beyado;” and German, “O Tannenbaum.”
