Houston, Texas - This December 8 and 9 the Houston Tidelanders Chorus, an all-male a cappella group, will share their charming original story “A Stolen Christmas.” Written by playwright, Jim “Hawk” Halcarz, a 20-year veteran of the Tidelanders, the “Grinchy” baritone put the holiday festivities in jeopardy. But never fear, the chorus keeps the spirit of the performance alive with holiday favorites including “Jingle Bell Rock,” “O Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” and more.  A new arrangement of “Candy Cane Christmas” created by tenor section leader Mark Smith captures the child-like wonder of Christmas and all of its joys.  Additionally, Space City Chorus will join the Tidelanders on-stage, plus, the Barbershop Harmony Society’s 2016 International Quartet Champion, Forefront, will share their dynamic sounds on the holiday program.  This is the 70th Annual Christmas program performed by the Houston Tidelanders.   The “Grinchy” baritone finds joy at the end of the program and so will the audience after singing along to several special holiday songs.  What better way to kick-off a celebration for the most wonderful time of the year?

On Saturday, December 8 at 2 P.M., the Houston Tidelanders will perform at the Fishers of Men Lutheran Church, 2011 Austin Parkway, Sugar Land, TX 7747. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children.  Tickets for the December 8 performance at the Fisher of Men Lutheran Church are available online at or by phone (713) 223-8433. 

Tickets for the Sunday December 9, 2:00 P.M. performance at the Midtown Arts and Theater Complex Houston, 3400 Main Street, Houston, 77002 are $20 per person and available at the Box Office or by phone (713) 521-4533.   The Houston Tidelanders Chorus is funded in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
