Christmas at Belmont 2019 features Belmont University students along with Michael W. Smith, CeCe Winans and the Nashville Children’s Choir. 

Grammy-winning musician Michael W. Smith and celebrated gospel artist CeCe Winans are the guest artists for the 2019 Christmas at Belmont holiday concert recorded in Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The festive production features nearly 800 musicians and performers, including Belmont University students, Belmont School of Music faculty and the Nashville Children’s Choir. Christmas at Belmont airs Tuesday, December 15 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Among the groups to be featured in this year’s edition of Christmas at Belmont are the University Symphony Orchestra, Belmont Chorale, Percussion Ensemble, Musical Theatre, Jazz Ensemble and Bluegrass Ensemble, as well as mass choir. The performance includes both classic holiday music such as “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” as well as festive seasonal songs like “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and “White Christmas.” Smith performs his song “The Promise” and Winans sings a beautiful rendition of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Later, the hosts perform a duet of Smith’s “Christmas Day” featuring the Nashville Children’s Choir.
