American Holiday

December 3, 2016 7:30pm


We celebrate the holidays in America with Bach’s sublime Magnificat in collaboration with the Renaissance City Choir. We also bring you the mystical lyricism of Alan Hovhaness and Whitefield Chadwick, the masterful touch of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn in their swinging jazz adaptation of The Nutcracker, and lots of holiday cheer with Leroy Anderson’s A Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride!
