The Santa Cruz Chorale will open its 2019-2020 season with their traditional December Holiday Concerts, “Christmas with the Chorale.” Join the Chorale for an eclectic musical celebration at Holy Cross Church. The centerpiece of the concerts will be Dietrich Buxtehude’s Magnificat for choir and instruments, presented alongside a cappella Magnificat settings by Anton Bruckner, Max Reger and Arvo Pärt, whose famous Magnificat was composed especially for Christian Grube and his Berlin boys’ choir. A special treat in the program is the world premiere of a lovely little piece by Estonian Pärt Uusberg, dedicated to Christian and the Santa Cruz Chorale. Conductor Christian Grube has also selected a variety of pieces that express the many meanings of Christmas, from composers such as Kodaly, Vaughan Williams, Tavener, and Paminger. The Christmas program will close with carols from around the world. As in previous years, the Santa Cruz Chorale will be joined by the Monterey Bay Sinfonietta. Two shows! Saturday, December 21st – 8:00 – 10:00 pm and Sunday, December 22nd – 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Come and join us for these very festive concerts! General Admission $30, Seniors (62+) $25 and Students $5.
