This wonderful program was produced in December of 2010 and televised by Queens Public Television as it was broadcast from New York’s Historic Flushing Town Hall. The presentation led with the “Jacob’s Gift”, the Immaculate Conception’s Aquinas Society’s story of Jacob Riis, the Danish journalist and photographer who lived in Richmond Hill, New York and is credited with bringing the tradition of Christmas caroling to North America. Following the story, the audiences were treated to the main event, a musical performance by a symphony orchestra and a choir made up of some of the finest talents in the New York Metropolitan area, under the direction of Maestro Robert Sonnenberg. Featured soloist and Narrator Andrew Joseph Koslosky guided the audience on a journey through scripture and music remembering the accounts of the very first Christmas.
A spectacular CD of the Public Television award winning musical program taped lived was created by Grammy Award winning producer Jeff Jones.
A reprisal of the original program was produced in December of 2013 in the Immaculate Conception Center, Douglaston, NY, which was also televised by Public television.
