This post-pandemic holiday tour-de-force features dynamic musical selections from traditional nostalgic to the infamously outrageous. After more than a year without in-person rehearsals and performances, the singers of HMCKC are bursting at the seams to bring back the seasonal sass that marks the traditional start to KC’s holiday festivities.

Join HMCKC for a high-energy holiday experience that will leave you singing JOY to the world, once again!

Saturday, December 4, 2021,  8:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 5, 4:00 p.m at the Folly Theater, 300 West 12th Street, Kansas City, Missouri.


As you prepare to attend the Heartland Men’s Chorus Holiday Concert, Joy at The Folly Theater you’ll want to keep apprised of the latest COVID-19 protocols and procedures during the event. 

Audience Requirements

The Folly requires ID and proof of vaccination OR a negative covid test within the previous 72 hours.

No one under age 2 is allowed at the performance.

Additionally, HMCKC is requiring masking for patrons and employees inside the venue regardless of vaccination status. Mesh masks, face shields without masks underneath, scarves, bandanas, and neck gaiters are not permitted.

Chorus Member Requirements

All HMCKC members and staff are required to be fully vaccinated. 

Prior to each performance HMCKC is testing each singing chorus member before they take the stage. Members will only be allowed to sing if they are negative for COVID-19. This is for the safety of the audience and other members. 

HMCKC will be allowed to sing without a mask once they have been tested. 

No Intermission

The holiday concert this year was programmed to run around 75 minutes so there will be no intermission. 

There will be no concessions (bar service) at the Folly Theater prior to, or after the concert.
