Cowboy Christmas Mixes Holiday Hits

Michael Murphey broke ground in 1987 with his innovative Christmas show. During his concert, Murphey mixes Christmas classics such as “Joy to the World,” “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” and “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” with country holiday favorites like “Christmas Cowboy Style” and “Two-Step Round the Christmas Tree” along with his hits “Wildfire,”  “Carolina In The Pines,” and “What’s Forever For,” among other great songs.

His nostalgic, down-home, inspirational Christmas show appeals to a broad cross-section of fans. Since his first Performing Arts Center concert in 2005, Murphey’s Cowboy Christmas has become an Islander tradition for Coastal Bend residents and Winter Texans alike.

The Miller Sound Lives Forever

The Glenn Miller Orchestra, formed in 1956, spices up the Performing Arts Center stage with its unique jazz sounds and swing dance engagements. The 18-member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements. The Glenn Miller Orchestra today is still the most sought after big band in the world, playing an average of 300 live dates a year.
