What Is Hallmark’s Christmas In My Heart About?
According to the Hallmark press release, Christmas In My Heart is a musical feast. With Christmas fast approaching, concert violinist Beth (Hemmens) returns to her hometown after the recent passing of her mother. Her mother was the elementary school’s beloved music department head.
Soon, Beth crosses paths with Katie (Nash), a young, promising violinist. Katie is the daughter of country music star Sean Grant (Macfarlane). He’s been living a quiet life there since his wife’s passing.
Sean’s mother-in-law Ruthie (Ralph) wants him to move on with his life. However, he’s still coming to terms with his loss. Because of this, he hasn’t been inspired to create new music.
Eager to sharpen her skills for the town’s upcoming recital dedicated to Beth’s mother, Katie finds a creative way to get Sean to hire Beth as her tutor, despite his skepticism about the value of formal music instruction.
As their lessons progress, Beth and Katie connect over their love of classical music, and Katie’s confidence grows. Although Beth and Sean are sometimes at odds with each other, they learn that the power of music and friendship can have significant healing properties, especially at Christmastime
What Are Luke Macfarlane’s Musical Talents?
Hallmark fans who love Luke Macfarlane may not realize that he is a talented musician. Last year, he starred in Chateaux Christmas with Merritt Patterson. In this movie, he plays the cello.
According to an interview in Courant, the Killjoys actor had auditioned with Juilliard with the cello. He didn’t get in with that skill, but instead, he got in with his cello skills.
Before that, Luke was also in a band called Nameless. There, he was a singer and songwriter. But, he had left the band before he saw any success as a musician. In Christmas In My Heart, Macfarlane gets to live that professional musician fantasy.
But, will he be playing and singing any songs in the Hallmark movie? You better tune in to find out!
