2019 Tosco Music Holiday Party Highlights


WOW. These simply heavenly harmonies by K3 lifted everyone to a higher place at McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square in Charlotte, NC! Kelsey D. Waller, Ke'Andra Davis and Karen Poole shared quite a gift with their performance of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel". There were so many wow performances at this year's Tosco Music Holiday Party -- check back for more performance highlights as they become available.

Noel and Maria took us to church! Noel Freidline and Maria Howell, accompanied by Al Sergel IV on drums, brought the house down when they shared a powerful, original arrangement of "Silent Night"
Mercury Carter delivered more a capella magic and captivated the sold-out crowd with his performance of "Ave Maria" 
The African Community Choir closed the show with energetic, powerful performance of "Mary, Did You Know?" 
Curt Keyz  shared his own, original Christmas song "Under the Mistletoe"
Grupo Los Morales  shared a wonderful medley in the spirit of "Feliz Navidad"
Carrie Marshall shared a funky original arrangement of "We Three Kings"

Thank you to everyone who came, played, sang, served, decorated, loaded, unloaded, set up, cleaned up, laughed, cried (some of us teared up more than once!) and especially celebrated the wonderful experience of sharing music together at the start of the holiday season with this incredible community we’re all lucky to be a part of and enjoy! Here are some of the comments we've received:
