On this year’s performance, Artistic Director Thomas Douglas stated,
“We are delighted to collaborate with the Choir from CAPA under the direction of our own Associate Conductor Jon Erik Schreiber. It is a pleasure to celebrate the spirit of the season by sharing this holiday tradition with the next generation of performers. In selecting the pieces for this program, it was important for us to represent some of the many traditions, both religious and secular, that are celebrated this time of year. Presented in the inspirational setting of St. Agnes Center, these concerts will set a beautiful scene for your Holiday season.”
