Welcome Yule

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time (New York Today) for its 'full-bodied sound'", the Dessoff Choirs ushers in the winter solstice with a concert of seasonal repertoire and contemporary arrangements of carols. The choir will surround the audience and cradle them in the music of Bach’s Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, BWV 230, and in music by Tavener, Lauridsen and Howells. This music, along with the audience joining in on the carols, is the perfect way to enjoy the holiday spirit.
