Great music and fun are the tradition at the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame’s annual holiday concert.
Celebrating its 45th year, this community event will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, at the museum in Goshen.
Returning to the concert’s musical lineup are the Yuletide Carolers, a costumed Victorian vocal quartet from New York City. The Carolers will greet guests entering the museum with their festive songs and will also appear later in the program. Sponsoring the Carolers once again is Bob Boni of Northwood Bloodstock in memory of John A. Cashman Jr.
The Goshen High School Varsity Choir and Jazz Voices Ensemble return for their 20th consecutive appearance, followed by the popular audience participation number, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The evening wraps up with refreshments served in the Carriage Room.
Reservations are encouraged but not required. Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Arrive early to enjoy the holiday tree trimmed with donated horse-themed ornaments and to tour the museum and its festive halls and stalls. The Winner’s Circle Gift Shop offers holiday shopping, with concertgoers receiving a 10 percent discount!
