Holiday Cheer: “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” by the Georgetown Chimes (Video)

From the a capella group's performance at a Georgetown event Monday.

Here’s a little something to inspire holiday season cheer. The Citizens Association of Georgetown held a small, private holiday dinner party Monday evening at the Georgetown Club on Wisconsin Avenue. While Santa Claus didn’t make an appearance, possibly the next best thing did: The Georgetown Chimes. Members of the all-male a capella group arrived just before dinner to sing carols.

The Chimes were formed in 1946. They say they are the university’s oldest a capella group and have performed for every president since Harry Truman, as well as traveled the country on behalf of Georgetown University.
