Traditional works by Victoria, Byrd, and Praetorius will be presented alongside contemporary pieces by Bullard, Forbes, and Lohman. 

To add to our sense of togetherness this season, please join us in singing traditional carols, such as Joy to the World and Silent Night! This beautiful, poignant program will help put you in a reflective and joyous mood. We hope to see you there!
