Tenor Ben Bliss grew up learning about opera but he'll be switching gears for his latest project featuring seasonal standards.

You might know Prairie Village native Ben Bliss as an opera singer, but this Saturday he's hosting a holiday concert with a nostalgic nod to crooners of decades past.

The one-hour "Holiday Bliss" livestream concert will feature Kansas City musicians like his sister and brother-in-law Becky and Nathan Bliss of Barnaby Bright, Mark Lowrey and Sascha Groschang.

The Harriman-Jewell Series will present star tenor Ben Bliss, family, and special guests in HOLIDAY BLISS, a free livestream concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 12, performed at the 1900 Building in Mission Woods. More information is available at the Harriman Jewell Series website.
