“Home for the Holidays,” a 30-minute showcase of holiday songs from the Boston Gay Men's Chorus will air on WCVB Channel 5 on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 11:35 p.m. and again on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1 p.m.
This special production features past performances of beloved Christmas carols, festive favorites, and modern classics from BGMC’s legendary holiday concerts intercut with scenes of local holiday traditions like ice skating at the Boston Common Frog Pond and the city’s annual tree lighting; BGMC’s international tours, and reflections from chorus members on the meaning and magic of the season and its songs. Hosted by Reuben M. Reynolds III with an introduction by Randy Price, the country’s first openly gay TV news anchor who recently retired from WCVB-TV after many years, “Home for Holidays” brims with beautiful music and family-friendly fun.
Viewers will be treated to BGMC’s performances of “Here We Come A Wassailing,” “Sparklejollytwinklejingley,” “Zum Gali,” which tells the Hanukkah story; “Betelehemu,” a percussive Yoruba Christma Carol; “Silent Night” featuring an ASL interpretation by the full chorus; and the show-stoppingly spectacular “Pink Christmas,” complete with BGMC ballerinas.
