Spring Hill, Florida (December 21, 2018) – On December 18 the carolers of Live Oak Theatre visited the patients of Oak Hill Hospital. Donned in 17th century (Dickens era) attire, the carolers strolled through every accessible area of the facility spreading Christmas cheer to patients, families, associates and doctors.
Everyone was treated to a combination of standard Christmas carols such as Silent Night as well as modern traditional Christmas songs such as White Christmas sung in a variety of harmonies.
Both patients and associates expressed a great deal of gratitude to the carolers encouraging them to “stay awhile,” suggesting various carols and joining in the singing.
The carolers of Live Oak Theatre were invited by the public relations and communications department of Oak Hill Hospital. “We were deeply moved by the experience and especially in everyone’s reaction to the experience,” said Vince Vanni, vice president of Live Oak Theatre. “We are also grateful for the gracious donation made by Oak Hill Hospital to Live Oak Theatre’s scholarship fund for its conservatory,” he added.
Live Oak Theatre’s Conservatory offers approximately 25 group classes in all performing arts as well as private music, vocal, dance and acting lessons.
