Our 50th season opens with a holiday concert of inspiring compositions on the theme of light.

Bach’s Cantata 140 and B Minor Mass; Laura Hawley’s Alhamdoulillah (Live, Love, Share), sung in French and Arabic; Charles Baker’s Three Hanukkah Songs; and a choral banquet of traditional and contemporary seasonal works. To celebrate our five decades of musical performance, CCC alumni will add their voices to several pieces.
