Please join Arizona Repertory Singers online for our December virtual choir concert, Home For The Holidays, a collection of holiday favorites that ARS audiences have enjoyed through the years, along with a few new pieces with stunning and soothing harmonies.
Musical selections span the sacred and secular including Benjamin Britten’s “Wolcum Yole,” from his “Ceremony of Carols,” chromatic harmonies from African-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s “Summer is Gone,” and Shawn Kirchner’s bluegrass inspired rendition of “Brightest and Best” with violin, cello, and piano accompaniment.
Home For The Holidays will premiere on December 11th. The link can be accessed anytime through December 31. Cost: $20 per household.
