Celebration (Series) (1975-1976)

Celebration was one of television's rare attempts to put programming that had devotional roots anywhere other than Sunday. Essentially a musical variety series, Celebration concentrated on gospel and inspirational music. It also used filmed interview segments, with people talking about spiritually meaningful subjects, to anchor the meaning of the songs. Musical arrangements were by Doug Riley, one of the mainstays of Toronto session work, and a successful arranger for vocal groups such as Dr. Music. The series' featured octet was called the Celebration Choir. The show's host was singer Tommy Ambrose, long ago a graduate of Country Hoedown who had developed a career as a popular songwriter and session singer.
