The Best of Christmas with the Chorale

The Chorale's audience surveys have shown which motets and carols of past Christmas concerts were most loved. This year we will present highlights from Christmas concerts of the past ten years, and we hope your personal favorite is included in our selection. The Chorale will again be joined by the Monterey Bay Sinfionetta and organist Vlada Moran.


Guest Choir: New Choir

A Dialogue of Heaven and Earth

The highly acclaimed New Choir, celebrating its 17th season under founding director, Eileen Chang, is noted for presenting diverse, challenging and engaging choral music from many cultures and musical periods.

In this concert, the choir will explore our conversation with the Creator as expressed in the words we exchange with each other and the sounds of creation that surround us.

Our June concert presents works by two great composers of the Romantic Period: Gabriel Fauré and Felix Mendelssohn.  The centerpiece of the program is one of Fauré's most famous works, the Requiem for soprano and baritone soloists, choir, orchestra and organ.  The Requiem will be preceded by Fauré's beloved Cantique de Jean Racine, which shows the influence of Mendelssohn on the young Fauré.  As an homage to Mendelssohn, the concert will include two of his cantatas for choir and orchestra.
