Joy to the World: Celebrate the Gift of Song this Holiday Season

Nov 3, 2023, 19:16 PM

Attending the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market is an annual tradition for many. And this year, we’re elevating and enhancing your experience with LIVE performances by the amazing Cincinnati Sound Chorus! 

Founded 65+ years ago, the non-profit Cincinnati Sound Chorus is the Tri-State's premier women's barbershop chorus. These graceful ladies share a love of singing, and typically perform a four-part a cappella harmony arranged in barbershop style.  

At the show, the chorus will perform Christmas carols to spark more joy into your shopping experience! Listen for Jingle Bells, Joy to the World, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and more!

The Cincinnati Sound Chorus will perform during VIP morning on Thursday, then caroling quartets will roam through show Friday and Saturday from 4-6:00 p.m. 

As you shop and sing along to these familiar holiday tunes, here are some musical gift ideas you’ll find at the show to inspire you to share the gift of music with your loved ones this year.

Stop by to customize your very own music hoodie or shirt for the music lover in your life and browse their handmade music-themed tees too. They also carry handmade tumblers and snarky gift towels.

Wacky Wonderworks in booth 1512 offers extraordinarily creative, operating mechanical puzzles made from laser cut birch plywood. The puzzles range from very simple to challenging, and are put together without any glue, simply using precise joinery. Each presents unique, satisfying challenges to build and ongoing enjoyment operating them by hand or rubber band. These charming grand piano and ballerina music boxes will surely become a family favorite.
