Giveaway: Tickets to see The Snowman at Walton Arts Center

This week we’re giving four tickets to a fun holiday show that combines a classic children’s book with live symphony music in a one-of-a-kind concert created specifically for families. The event is called “The Snowman,” and it happens at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 11, 2022 on the Walton Arts Center stage.

ABOUT THE SHOW: The tradition continues! Join us for a special screening of The Snowman, based on Raymond Briggs’ classic children’s book, with the original score performed live by the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas ( SoNA). Following the screening, acclaimed Music Director Paul Haas will lead the audience in a sing-a-long of other holiday favorites. Join us for a merry and bright afternoon of family-friendly symphonic music!

The event is perfect for kids, especially those who love animated movies and music.

  1. One of my favorite Christmas songs is Beautiful Star of Bethlehem by The Judds. As a matter of fact, I love their entire Christmas album. It’s part of my childhood and it’s still awesome to me as an adult.

  2. It has to be Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is you! It’s not Christmas until you hear that song. My daughter and I love to dance around the kitchen to this song.

  3. I would love to win tickets! My family loves frosty the snowman music and Rudolph the red nose reindeer.

  4. Definitely, O Holy Night. When I hear someone sing this at church, I almost feel like I’m in Bethlehem on a cold, clear night waiting on the Savior to be born. There is such a moment of peace! Rae

  5. It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, and Away in a Manger. Mary Did you Know also beautiful. So many good ones-hard to pick just one!!

  6. I love to listen to all Christmas music but I think Frosty The Snowman has special memories for me as a child. Thank you for all your fun giveaways and your newsletter.

  7. “Mary, Did You Know”has always been a favorite of mine!! It’s honestly just such a beautiful song!!!

  8. Silent Night has always been a favorite. I remember always having my mom sing me that song to fall asleep.

  9. Up on the Housetop has been a fav of mine since I was in band in Junior High. It’s very magical when you get to play it & I can still remember the saxophone lines by heart.

  10. I love It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, O Holy Night, and All I Want for Christmas is You!

  11. Oh Holy Night, c’mon Ring those Bells, Mary Did You Know and many more! I love Christmas and Christmas songs!

  12. I love it all. Love TransSiberian Orchestra for when I’m working! I love the hymns in minor keys… like o come o come Emmanuel.
