Our 50th holiday concert celebrates the gift of choral music — the gift the singers offer, and the gift the audience returns. We will begin with Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, and continue with cherished repertoire from concerts past, including Nigra Sum and Hanget Soi. Leaping into the present, we will debut two world premieres: Dale Trumbore’s (Winner of the WomenSing’s 2011-2012 Youth Insipiring Youth Composition Competition) Ave generosa, based on the words of Hildegard von Bingen, and Martín Benvenuto’s arrangement of Christina Rossetti’s beloved retelling of the Nativity story, In the Bleak Midwinter.

Tickets are $28 for general admission and $10 for students/youth 18 and under. Advance tickets are available up to 24 hours prior to each concert online, or by phone at 925-974-9169. Tickets will also be available at the door.
