Old South Church in Boston’s Back Bay provides a glorious backdrop for our annual holiday celebration. Our theme this year is “Dawn on our Darkness.” The candlelit evening features the chorus singing both a cappella and accompanied by the church’s majestic Skinner organ in a program filled with holiday classics, new works, and plenty of opportunities for the audience to sing along.

Program will include:
  • Kirchner: Brightest and Best
  • Terry Halco: Christmas Eve
  • Jocelyn Hagen: Deck the Hall
  • Bittrich: Festejo de Navidad
  • Runestad: Let My Love Be Heard
  • Houston: Emerald Stream
  • A. Thomas: The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy
  • Dan Forrest: See Amid the Winter’s Snow

A selection of traditional and well-loved carols, to be announced.

  • Joy to the World
  • Silent Night
