AMO SWING’S INTO CHRISTMAS!
Alive Music Orchestra swings into their 26th Annual AMO Christmas show
part of the Friday December 8th Alive Music Orchestra Christmas production
at Valley Church in Vacaville, will incorporate traditional sing-along carols
and popular Christmas songs made famous by a host of celebrity singers
(Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole, etc.), meant to remind people
that the holidays are a season of peace, family and most importantly the
miraculous birth of Christ says Stout, a trumpeter and AMO music director.
Enjoy big band vocalist Pastor Frank Salamone of Dixon Cornerstone
Church, vocalist Pete Ayers, Fairfield Civic Theater’s Barbara McFadden,
and outstanding local musicians performing with AMO of memorable popular
Christmas songs, as well as Keith Stout’s family: Ken and Brette Alana Stout.
As it has in years past, the AMO show incorporates an American tradition
originally founded by Bob Hope’s USO Christmas tours overseas, honoring
and entertaining our troops. "We always include a special dedication to
our troops and their families, praying for a safe return home," says Stout,
an Air Force "brat" whose father served in Vietnam, "That's something
we feel strongly about, especially during the Christmas season.”
The show will include Christmas stories hosted by AMO's Chaplain
Stan Suderow, encouraging families about love, peace and the miracle of
Christmas, especially, enlight of these uncertain economic times and unrest.
The AMO Christmas show will celebrate over two and half decades of Christmas
productions and will be recognizing AMO musicians, vocalist, actors, and support
staff serving and or have served the community for many years.

volunteers for making 2017 a successful year, helping to “Save Our Music”
