HOLIDAY Concerts

Christmas is a time of wonder, and there is no greater expression of this wonder than the blooming rose in wintertime, a symbol of majesty, hope, and imagination. The Master Singers build upon this symbology to bring you a magnificent collection of music for the Christmas season to include: impossibly beautiful music like Ola Gjeilo's Away in a Manger - a melody you think you know, however you don't until you hear this version; music with delightful rhythmic intensity such as Michael John Trotta's Veni, Veni Emmanuel; and gospel spirituals such as Rosephanye Powell's Who is the Baby? Our holiday concerts close with the traditional presentation of A Festival of Lessons and Carols that includes carols and Bible readings.
