Celebrate the holidays at the 12th annual Jingle Bell Jamboree, a fun family concert event and sing-a-long set for:
Sunday, Dec. 16, 5 p.m.
Congregation Beth Elohim,
Eighth Avenue and Garfield Place
The musical extravaganza will feature performances from a variety of performing ensembles, including The Mark Morris Dance Group Student Company, The Brooklyn Community Chorus, Spoke the Hub Dance, the P.S. 97 Chorus, the St. Joseph High School Step Team, and the Old First Family String Band. In addition, there is a festive sing-a-long throughout the show — and who’d want to miss the traditional Grande Finale: The 12 Days of Christmas, performed by the entire audience!
Ethan Schlesser, the event’s producer, and Reverend Daniel Meeter, pastor of Old First Reformed Church and a Park Slope Civic Council Trustee, will once again serve as hosts for the festivities.
The event is open to all, with a suggested donation of $5 or $10 (children/adults) to help cover the expenses of the participating groups and Congregation Beth Elohim.
The Park Slope Civic Council, Park Slope Parents, Old First Reformed Church, and Congregation Beth Elohim are co-sponsors of the Jingle Bell Jamboree.
The Civic Council will also be collecting new and gently used unwrapped gifts at the Jamboree as part of our Toys for Tots campaign, helping local organizations that work with families in need.
The Jingle Bell Jamboree was initially launched in the aftermath of 9/11 as a way of bringing the community together to help with the healing process. Read more about the history of the Jamboree here.
