On Friday, Portland’s Annual Tree Lighting Sing-Along, presented by SmartPark, will once again be presented virtually to safely unite Portlanders in a special televised broadcast on KGW 8. This half-hour special program, hosted by KGW anchor Nina Mehlhaf, will showcase a musical journey featuring regional high school bands and choral groups who will lead Portlanders in a televised sing along.
Seasonal holiday music will feature Portland’s own Thomas Lauderdale and China Forbes of Pink Martini with student performances by Portland’s Grant and Lincoln High Schools, along with Reynolds High School, The BRAVO Youth Orchestra, and Beaverton’s Arts & Communication Magnet Academy. The Pacific Youth Choir will lead viewers in a series of sing along carols that lead up the Tree Lighting countdown with Santa.
This televised lighting celebration replaces the traditional in-person event for the second year in a row as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. The televised event will include onscreen lyrics and downloadable songbooks for families to celebrate the kick-off of the holiday season from their own living rooms!
