The Christmas story is told by a celebrity narrator and accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra, the Voices of Liberty, Cast Member Choir and guest choirs. A guest conductor leads the orchestration of this moving tribute.
I love the Candlelight Processional, but the lines have gotten so long for every show, that I only manage to see it every few years. I was fortunate last week to see Neil Patrick Harris narrate the Candlelight Processional.
From the moment it began, I sat mesmerized in my seat watching and listening to the beautiful sounds of the Christmas season. The 6 year old sitting in front of me barely moved during the entire performance.
In addition to Neal Patrick Harris, the guest conductor was Dr. William Powell, Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Auburn University. I can't recall another conductor so animated that he became part of the show. There were times, I wasn't sure where to train my eyes. It was all so fascinating to watch.

Do You Hear What I Hear
Joy to the World
