CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD

The CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD concert takes place on Sunday, December 8th, 2019 at 7:00pm.  For this concert, we need a well-rounded repertory of Christmas, Hanukkah and Holiday music from places all around the world.  Singers are encouraged to audition pieces that represent a specific country or culture.  Here are some sample suggestions of songs that fit well with this theme.  We have easy choral arrangement for each of these, but each one requires a soloist.  The arrangements on youtube are different than our arrangements.
