Christmas with the Tabernacle Choir

Dear Viewers and Listeners:

Happy holidays! This December brings entertaining and enjoyable programming, part of our Festival schedule as well as our seasonal offerings.

SCETV ‘s Festival offers a variety of captivating new shows, including a song-filled evening with composer and songwriter David Foster; a tribute to the great Aretha Franklin; the complete broadcast of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert with John Legend; and a look back at highlights of the last 40 years of This Old House.

Our seasonal specials sprinkled through the month include the perennial favorite Christmas with the Tabernacle Choir, A Very Merry Christmas with the Bob Jones University Symphony Orchestra, Christmas at Belmont, and this year’s edition of Call the Midwife Holiday Special. Ending the year with a bang is the annual Live from Lincoln Center’s New York Philharmonic New Year’s Eve, which celebrates the music of Stephen Sondheim.

SC Public Radio also offers a varied line-up of seasonal music specials scattered through the month. Please see page 17 for times and dates.

Congratulations to our wonderful SC Public Radio journalists, who have recently garnered several awards. Reporters received four first-place awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas (RTDNAC); and a first-place award for Outstanding News Operation (South Carolina) as well as a second-place award in the Multimedia Package category from the Associated Press.

SCETV and SC Public Radio join me in wishing you and your family a very happy and safe holiday. With your wonderful support, we look forward to the New Year!
