Upcoming Ohnward Fine Arts Center Events

The Four Preps Holiday Show

Saturday, November 25 at 7:00 PM

Event Image

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

The songs of the hit pop-harmony ensemble The Four Preps stir up a memory or two hits like "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)", "Big Man," "Down By the Station," and "Dreamy Eyes" memories as dreamy and warm as an old-time Christmas morn.

The Four Preps will certainly share such era-favorites during their Christmas Show, which sparkles bright with more than a dozen traditional favorites like "O Come All Ye Faithful," "The First Noel," "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," "Hark The Herald," "Winter Wonderland" & other holiday classics.

Now, in their 56th year of performance, The Four Preps are still fronted by original lead singer Bruce Belland, who is joined by the well-matched vocal force of Bob Duncan (formerly of the Diamonds), Michael Redman & Skip Taylor (from the Crew Cuts).

Their Christmas Show is a harmonious gift that's cheery and bright, delivered with an elegance and style that reminds us this truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
