“O Holy Night” a Great Success!

On the evening of Saturday, Dec. 3, we were honored to host the annual “O Holy Night” Concert. Talented artists from stage and screen joined our phenomenal choir and orchestra for a night of stirring¬†Christmas music. We had a full house, as our local community gathered to celebrate the season!

While there were far too many wonderful moments to list here, these are a few highlights from the show:


The Schuller family welcomes the crowd to our celebration of Christmas.


It takes a lot of courage to sing in front of so many people, but Noelle Lidyoff performed “Sing We Now of Christmas” wonderfully!


Caity Peters shared deeper meaning of the season with her rendition of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”


Todd Strange jumped back and forth from the choir loft to center stage, using his gifts as an operatic tenor on songs like “Where Else Would a Lamb Be Born?”


Dorothy Benham is always a Shepherd’s Grove favorite, singing the titular song of the night.


Our own Voices of Hope children’s choir, led by Sarah Grandpre, performed “All is Well”, with a surprise joining of the Hour of Power choir to back them up!


Kevin Rose’s smooth voice fit perfectly with songs like “Believe”


Maiya Sykes had everyone on their feet following songs like “Jesus, O What a Wonderful Child”!

This was truly an amazing night of Christmas fun for everyone, right down to the magic of snowfall in Southern California! If you missed the concert and would still like to see it, or just want to watch it again (and again and again!), DVD’s of the program will soon be made available for purchase.

We would like to thank Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra, Don Neuen and the Hour of Power Choir, our amazing soloists and everyone that helped to make this evening a success. It is a joy to be able to share such great shows in our community. Merry Christmas, everyone!
