Santa Clara Chorale Holiday Concerts - December 9 and 10, 2006

Santa Clara Chorale in PragueI'm a proud Alto II member of the Santa Clara Chorale, a local choir made up of people of all ages who love to sing. There are also several music ministers from our parishes who participate in the chorale. We sing three concerts during the year as well as other shorter performances at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph's "Season of Hope" (December 14, 2006) and other venues in the Santa Clara County...even on the radio! (We'll be live on KBAY 94.5 this Saturday around noon broadcasting from Christmas in the Park, downtown San José.)

The Chorale is proud to present its annual Holiday Concert, this year titled, "Comfort and Joy." My first encounter with the Chorale was attending one of their holiday concerts at the invitation of Ray Crisologo, one of the Chorale members and music director at Saint Lawrence the Martyr. This year's concert will be even more fun with drums, flute, and organ in the beautiful Mission Santa Clara de Asis on the campus of Santa Clara University. You'll even get a chance to sing some favorite Christmas carols and holiday songs. Please come join us, rain or shine, for this fun holiday event.

The Santa Clara Chorale offers the community the opportunity to grow musically and perform regularly in programs that bring significant choral music from the past and present to growing audiences in the beautiful Mission Santa Clara setting. Since its beginnings in 1963, the Chorale has performed in numerous locations in the Bay Area and carried its music abroad in several concert tours, most recently in the summer of 2006 to Prague, Salzburg, and Vienna.
