Event Description

Jazz up your holidays with Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s dazzling adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.  Join us on a pilgrimage to discover the open-hearted mysticism of St. Francis of Assisi as found in his poem ‘Canticle Brother Sun’ through the radiant and awe-inspiring music of Eli Tamar.  Experience Taylor’s playful Christmas Overture, the sublime Ave Maria by Mascagni, and Anderson’s exuberant Sleigh Ride. The grand finale of the Holiday concert will put you in the spirit of the season as we perform our traditional Sing Along.  Soloists: Tino Cardenes , Charlene Canty, Molly May
