The Colorado Springs Chorale announces their Christmas family favorite, Deck the Hall, “The Best Way to Celebrate Christmas,” (Best of the Springs, The Gazette) Friday, December 12, 2014, 7:30 p.m., at the Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts.
Deck the Hall 2014 will include many Christmas favorites including arrangements of Silent Night, Deck the Hall, Adeste Fidelis, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and The Twelve Days of Christmas, to name a few. International Christmas pieces include Il est ne le divin enfant, Riu Riu Chiu, Jauchzet dem Herren and Bahyooshkee-Bahyoo – an original composition and Chorale favorite by composer and Chorale member Judith Kramer. The Colorado Springs Chorale’s nearly 130 auditioned singers will craft a beautiful and inspiring experience that touches your soul and lifts your spirits with just the right amount of fun. Of course, the audience is always a part of the music and will have the opportunity to sing along with the choir for three traditional carols.
The Chorale’s special guests this year are the members of the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony’s Brass Ensemble. The Ensemble will perform by themselves and will also accompany the Chorale for a Daniel Brink arrangement of Jingle Bells and Pinkham’s Christmas Cantata.
Add to this Santa and Mrs. Claus in the lobby, decorations, spectacular lighting and the marvelous accompaniment of Kelly Zuercher, pianist and Carol Wilson, organist, for a very festive Christmas celebration. The Chorale’s gorgeous sound, affordable tickets, and a beautifully decorated stage with striking and atmospheric lighting, combine to create a delightful family evening of traditional, favorite, and new Christmas music.
