Sounds of Christmas Friends:
On behalf of GLT and the Music Shoppe, it is with sadness we announce Sounds of Christmas has come to a close. State Farm has informed us the corporate headquarters’ atrium is undergoing extensive renovation and will no longer be available to host the event.
State Farm has graciously hosted Sounds of Christmas since its inception. In 1982 the show was created as a musical gift to the community from State Farm, WJBC , and Dick Benson. Each entity had a unique role: State Farm provided the venue and logistical support, WJBC promoted it and distributed tickets, and Dick Benson assembled performers and produced the program.
Over the years, changes came and the show continued. Dick Benson passed the baton to The Music Shoppe, GLT took over promotion, but it’s difficult to envision Sounds of Christmas being moved to a different venue.
All of the local performers and volunteers over the years have been the magic of Sounds of Christmas. We are deeply grateful to them all for sharing their gifts with our community, and although this holiday tradition has ended, we will carry the spirit with which it was given these last three decades.
