Grammy-winning musician Sheryl Crow hosts the 2017 Christmas at Belmont holiday concert recorded in Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center and at McAfee Concert Hall on the Belmont University campus. The festive production features nearly 700 musicians and performers, including Belmont University students, Belmont School of Music faculty and the Nashville Children’s Choir. Christmas at Belmont premieres on NPT Thursday, Dec. 14, at 8 p.m. and on PBS affiliates across the country on Friday, Dec. 22, at 8 p.m. CT. The show will air several times on NPT.

This year’s edition of Christmas at Belmont features Belmont Chorale, University Orchestra, Musical Theatre Ensemble, Jazzmin, Bluegrass Ensemble, Jazz Band and Bluegrass Ensemble.
