Uptown Carolers

Performing in elegant Victorian costumes that appear to be plucked from the pages of a Dickens novel, Uptown Carolers are sure to bring musical merriment to NRH!

Formed in 2012, Uptown Carolers is DFW's most versatile Christmas caroling company. A virtual caroling jukebox, the group has over 70 songs memorized and happily accepts requests from the audience. Performing from memory allows the carolers to put on an exciting show and interact with the crowd without having to flip pages or glance down at a book.
