CFCArts is getting in on some Frontyard Festival action next week with Noel: The Carols of Christmas, an evening of holiday song and stories with some special guest narrators.

A handful of local celebs are set to take part in Noel, giving a dramatic read of the story of Christmas: Jason Guy from WESH, Mayor Buddy Dyer, Commissioner Patty Sheehan, Rep. Anna Eskamani, Reverend Dr. Randolph Bracy Jr., Chad and Leslye from Magic 107.7-FM, and Jenny Castillo from RUMBA 100.3-FM.

“We’re so honored and excited to have the participation of these highly respected community leaders,” said Joshua Vickery, executive director of CFCArts, in a press statement. “We will also have some surprise guests joining us in performance that night!”

The music will come courtesy of the able hands and voices of members of the CFCArts Community Choir and Symphony Orchestra, and conductors Justin Muchoney and Vickery.
