For the 5th year in a row, New Music Collective will be putting their spin on spreading holiday cheer with Boombox Christmas Caroling with Phil Kline's Unsilent Night.

With your help, NMC hopes to create a roving sound installation, where boomboxes replace voices in a holiday caroling event like no other. You bring a boombox, ipod with speakers, or any media playing device you wish, and they'll supply a CD, tape, or digital download of one of the four parts of the piece. Everyone presses play together, then take to the streets of Charleston, creating a cacophony of bells, voices, and reverberent joy echoing the sentiments of the season in a wholly unique way.

If you wish to join in this year, RSVP to so they'll know how many CDs/tapes to bring.

It all goes down on Saturday, December 18th. Participants will meet at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park at 5 p.m.
