This enchanting musical setting of Chris Van Allsburg’s best-selling Christmas classic, The Polar Express, tells the magical story of a boy who boards a mysterious train bound for the North Pole in search of a very special gift.
This is Rob Kapilow's conceptual companion to Polar Express, and the two works pair beautifully to create a holiday concert that welcomes everyone. In Elijah's Angel, Michael Rosen's story for Chanukah and Christmas, a young Jewish boy and an elderly Black wood-carver learn that the differences that separate us are not as important as the connections that bring us together.
The Snowman is a classic family film made all the more enjoyable by the imaginative and lovely soundtrack that accompanied it. Written by Howard Blake, the music very closely follows the animation, as there are no words in the film.
