True Concord knows how to do Christmas!
Cathy Burch, Arizona Daily Star
True Concord continues its holiday tradition performed in some of the area’s most beautiful churches. This year, experience music inspired by Mary, mother of the Christ child.
Mary was a young girl of about 14 when she gave birth to her son — and the child became her gift to humankind.
Celebrate the beauty and mystery of a gift given fully from the heart — with the glow of candles, the velvet sound of voices and the community of people joined together through music.
A gorgeous blend of voices, exquisite phrasing, and track after track of good cheer.
Brian Newhouse, Minnesota Public Radio
True Concord will perform old and new works for the season, including selections from its recent Christmas album. Critically heralded Christmas With True Concord: Carols in the American Voice reached No. 5 on Billboard’s Traditional Classical Chart. Everyone will be invited to join the voices of True Concord in familiar and beloved carols.
The concert includes excerpts from Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28, scored for choir and harp.
This is a gift to give yourself, family and friends.
