2016 | The Pageant

A narrative play with a live concert in the middle of it all! Mateo wrote for 30+ actors, built 2 sets on either side of the orchestra, and they put up a heartwarming, beautiful performance in which a little boy saves a Christmas Pageant. We revisit many Christmas classics through the eyes of a wildly imaginative and naïve 11-year old. Carol of the Bells performed by Salvation Army bell ringers, Angels We Have Heard On High performed by a choir of leather clad Hell’s Angels, Silent Night signed by a deaf girl, and more. This concert captures the magic and imagination of Christmas while tackling the harder subject of grief and it’s beauty in acceptance.

Featuring Bells of the Sound, Total Experience Gospel Choir, drummer Dave Testa, 32nd Street Singers, Columbia Kids Choir, full cast of professional actors and patient musician Lynsie Conrad (first patient to be cured of Leukemia through T cell immunotherapy)
