ICON Park will be hosting a celebration of the beloved hymns and carols, goodwill toward all, and of course, gathering together to spread light and love with the Light the World with Love Christmas Concerts.
From December 6 to 11, local high school, church, and community choirs will be performing nightly from 5 through 8 p.m. Each night, four choirs will perform traditional Christmas songs in front of ICON Park’s holiday tree. There will also be Christmas-inspired videos, and emcees will lead the crowd in singing some Christmas carols themselves. To close out the evening, professional performers will take the stage each night.
But that’s not all. To really drive home the reason for the season, the concerts will spotlight local charities. Attendees will be invited to donate via a virtual giving machine at www.lightorlando.acahand.org to help make a difference.
“At ICON Park, we’re all about showing locals and visitors alike what Orlando is all about,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, president and CEO of ICON Park. “The Light the World with Love Christmas Concerts are a perfect way to show off the talent here in Orlando, as well as to give back to the community we care about so much—plus, who couldn’t use a dose of the Christmas spirit?”
This is the first year for this event.
Local charities to be featured throughout this year’s event include Clarita’s House Outreach, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, Edgewood Children’s Ranch, Frontline Outreach, Latisha’s House, Matthew’s Hope, One Heart for Women and Children, Orlando Community & Youth Trust, Orlando Day Nursery & Childcare, Orlando Serve Foundation, Poverty Solutions Group, Russell Home, The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families, United Against Poverty, and The Salvation Army.
Featured performers include Daniel Emmet, Sunshine Mafia, Opera Orlando, David Osmond, Ofi, and God’s Example. Community choirs come from all over Central Florida.
