Mystic Seaport Museum to Host Community Carol Sing as a Drive-In

Out of Concern for COVID-19, Carolers to Sing from Their Cars

The annual Community Carol Sing at Mystic Seaport Museum will be held Sunday, December 20, from 3 to 4 p.m. This will be the 73rd year the Museum has held the event.

To accommodate a safe and socially distant event due to COVID-19, the singalong will be held as a drive-in at the Museum’s south parking lot. The songs will be broadcast so carolers can tune in on their car radio and join in the singing. The music will be led by the University of Connecticut’s Director of Choral Studies, Jamie Spillane, backed by a small choir and brass quartet.
Admission to the event is an item of non-perishable food, diapers/wipes, or pet food, which will be donated to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. All attendees of the event will also receive free admission to the Museum that day.

The parking lot opens at 1 p.m. and space is limited to 500 visitors. The event is first-come, first-served. Festive decorations on vehicles are encouraged with prizes for the most spirited autos.
Mystic Seaport Museum thanks its community partner Power Posse Productions for their technical support of the Community Carol Sing.
