This magnificent holiday program features the 70-voice Community Chorus of Detroit and full orchestra. Between selected movements of the J.S. Bach Christmas Oratorio, which provide a framework for the program, the concerts highlight contemporary works that are text-related to the traditional Christmas story including, among others, Morten Lauridsen’s “O Magnum Mysterium,” Brandon Spencer’s “The Lamb,” John Rutter’s “Candlelight Carol,” Billy Joel’s “Lullabye,” and Ysaye Barnwell’s “Would You Harbor Me?” With music from across an ocean and across centuries, the program weaves together the timeless story with our lives and world today, celebrating our universal shared humanity.

Masking is optional for audience members, however, our choristers will remain masked during performances.

We cannot acknowledge ticket orders by email; Will-call tickets will be held in your name at the door.

 

All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit thank you – our supporters – for all you do to help us to continue “Singing in the Heart of Detroit!”
