Goshen, NY --- Mark your calendar to attend the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame’s annual holiday concert on Thursday (Dec. 6). This member benefit event will be held in the Museum’s William R. Haughton Memorial Hall.
We are delighted to again welcome the Yuletide Carolers, sponsored by Robert Boni of Northwood Bloodstock in memory of John A. Cashman, Jr. Wearing authentic Victorian attire, the carolers will greet concert goers at the Museum entrance from 6:30–6:50 p.m. singing a number of the best-loved carols.
Goshen High School’s Varsity Choir and Jazz Voices Ensemble will also return for this special occasion. The Yuletide Carolers will join the Varsity Choir and the Jazz Voices in Haughton Hall at 7 p.m. The evening will end with lively audience participation in the concert’s annual version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
Arrive early to enjoy our holiday tree trimmed with horsey ornaments, tour the Museum with its festive halls and stalls, and check out the new exhibits that have been installed since last year’s concert. After the concert Edie Haughney, local financial advisor with Mark Kalish and Associates, an Ameriprise Platinum Financial Services practice in Goshen, will be providing a holiday dessert table for the enjoyment of all.
A visit to the Museum is never complete without a stop at the Winner’s Circle Gift Shop for the perfect holiday gift. Concert goers and shoppers will enjoy a 10 percent discount prior to the show.
Concert admission is $3.00 per person, and is waived for Museum members. Non-members who bring a new unwrapped toy for the Marines’ “Toys for Tots” program receive a $1.00 admission discount. As seating is limited we recommend making reservations as soon as possible.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program distributes toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. If you are unable to attend the concert, we invite you to drop off a new unwrapped toy in the Museum’s main lobby from now until Friday (Dec. 21) between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily. Help make a child happy this holiday season!
The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame, located at 240 Main Street in Goshen, N.Y., is open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. There is no charge for regular admission, thanks to the members of the U.S. Trotting Association.
