Jubilee Christmas Tour – Kalamazoo

Jubilee Christmas Tour - Kalamazoo

Jubilee Christmas Tour – Kalamazoo

December 4, 2014, 7:00 pm

The Jubilee Christmas Tour features three of Southern Gospel Music’s most recognized artists, The Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy Five. The 2014 Christmas Jubilee Tour will begin on Wednesday, December 4, at 7:00 pm, at Chenery Auditorium in Kalamazoo, MI, and continues through December 15 at select cities spread across the US and Canada.
What began as a light-hearted lunch conversation between three friends, has become one of the most popular concert tours in Gospel Music. Managed and promoted exclusively by IMC Management, The Jubilee Christmas Tour brings three of the most popular groups in Southern Gospel Music together for a unique and unforgettable concert experience. The event has proven to be very popular in cities across the United States, and has enjoyed sell-out concert attendance in numerous cities. In 2012, the three artists united to release the Jubilee Christmas recording, and in 2013, added an acappella recording featuring incredible 10-part harmonies on your favorite Christmas selections.
The unscripted and spontaneous format is both entertaining and inspirational, providing audiences with a most enjoyable, must-see evening. You’ll sing-along on many of your favorite Christmas songs, as well as hear some newer, soon-to-be Christmas Classics. You’ll laugh til you cry as you watch “Rodney G’s saxophone solo, and “Howie’s Red-Neck Snow Machine.” You’ll also be inspired by Ronnie Booth’s reading of The Christmas Story. This Christmas concert is a great way to introduce your family and friends to the music you love, and the real meaning of Christmas.

Complete information about the Jubilee Christmas concert may be obtained by visiting www.cheneryaud.com or calling (800)965-9324.
