We’re pleased to announce today acclaimed a cappella group Straight No Chaser (SNC) will perform a collection of holiday-themed favorites in the T5 Marketplace next Wednesday, December 1 at 1:30 p.m. ET as part of our popular Live from T5 concert series.

In 2008, Straight No Chaser re-energized holiday classics such as “Silent Night and “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” with their debut album release, “HOLIDAY SPIRITS.” The album spent 14 days in the #1 slot on Amazon.com, and five days at the top spot overall on iTunes. The group’s now famous YouTube sensation, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” peaked in the top 10 on the Christmas radio chart and reached the top 15 at Hot AC. Last year brought the release of “CHRISTMAS CHEERS,” which proved a top 50 smash on the Billboard 200 album chart. The collection features a further selection of holiday-themed classics, reworked in the group’s inventive and original style.
