Our Christmas Concert is on!

Dear Friend of the Santa Cruz Chorale,

We are delighted to be able to share our music with you again!

After too long a silence, we are planning to celebrate “Christmas with the Chorale” again.  The choir members are all vaccinated, we’ll be singing with masks, and the audience must also be masked and vaccinated.  In addition, the concert will be shorter than usual, with no intermission.  Since we are limiting audience size, you’ll have to order your tickets early!  But even with these limitations, you can be sure there will be no limitations to the beauty of the music.  Beginning with what is some of the oldest known Christmas music, Gregorian chant, we will sing music from centuries past, right up to compositions from modern times.  We will again be joined by the Monterey Bay Sinfonietta, and of course we will also perform carols from around the world.  We are very much looking forward to finally seeing you again, and to sharing with you the joy of Christmas music.

We will perform in Holy Cross Church on Saturday, December 18th, at 8:00 PM and Sunday, December 19th, at 4:00 PM.  We are requiring all audience members to wear a mask and show proof of vaccination and identification.  Please get your tickets in advance from purplepass.  We will not be selling tickets at the door.

We deeply appreciate the donations we have received over the last couple of years.  During the lockdown, the Chorale met via telepresence and tried to hone our musicianship.  We also rehearsed outdoors, and more recently indoors.  Our dedication to the art of music is strengthened by your encouragement and support.
