Timmy’s Happy Christmas, 1974

Tim Tamashiro and Arts Commons Presents invite you to revisit a time when the holidays meant TV specials, tinsel, and upbeat carols on your AM radio.

The year is 1974 and the Sears Wish Book has just landed on the front step of nine-year-old “Little Timmy’s” house, kicking off the annual Christmas list-making and the real lead-up to Christmas. A nostalgic journey through Christmases past, join Tim Tamashiro and relive the toys, family drama, and wide-eyed anticipation of what could be under the tree. An evening of music, storytelling, and laughter, wrapped up with a jazzy holiday ribbon with one of Calgary’s most beloved musicians and storytellers.

Join us for this holiday gift, from Arts Commons to you!

 “It’s so much fun to see the faces in the audience light up from the moment the show begins. I love to watch the audience lean into the story and songs.” Tim Tamashiro 

“Tim Tamashiro keeps us smiling.” The Daily Courier

Venue Maps

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the full replacement of all of its seats, in 2017.
