Arranged and Orchestrated by Russell Mauldin
This musical is set in a small town square as a local church choir gets ready for their annual Christmas presentation. Through the eyes of a local street vendor, several heart-felt stories are retold to communicate just what makes this annual event so special. When the extraordinary act of a selfless gift is provided by a doctor to a young boy, his need for surgery is met before she will attend to her own immediate need for treatment and surgery. And as a newspaper reporter publicizes the boys need for surgery, he is amazed, and surprised to see how God moves in the hearts of the community as they show love to a total stranger. Giving is what Christmas is all about-God sending His one and only Son to bring us a gift we did not deserve-the free gift of salvation.
Combining this captivating story with familiar classic songs and hymns, along with new songs of the season, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year is the perfect Christmas musical for your choir and congregation.
Masterfully arranged and orchestrated by Russell Mauldin in the Ready to Sing tradition to be vocally attainable and musically stirring, this 40-minute musical is perfect for the small to medium size choir, or the large choir with last-minute performance needs.
