Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale

Sunday, December 09, 2018 at 03:00 PM — 05:54 PM

Two Celebrations In One Holiday Concert

This year the Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale, youth ensemble and a professional orchestra

will present a “twofer” - a joyful program of classical (and not so classical) holiday music celebrating Christmas and the Chorale's 40th anniversary. 

The celebrations will start on Saturday's concert on December 8 at 7:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, December 9 at 3:00 p.m.

Started in 1978 by a high school music teacher and a handful of singers, the Chorale has grown and matured into a local treasure dedicated to presenting classical choral music in the valley. 

To celebrate the holidays, the Chorale and orchestra will present Bach’s powerful Magnificat, an exuberant and dramatic composition written in Leipzig for 1723 Christmas vespers

followed by more contemporary and lyrical compositions and holiday carols.  The Valley Wind Ensemble, Mystique (a local, girls’ acapella group) and the Chorale’s youth ensemble

will contribute to the celebration with their own selections and, the youth ensemble will close the concert with a carol sing-along.

On Saturday, December 8, concert goers can help the Chorale celebrate its anniversary at a private gala ($100 donation for champagne, wine, beer, and scrumptious appetizers at 6 p.m. and concert). 

Tickets may also be purchased for just the concerts and either way, the Chorale sincerely appreciates the support of the community and plans to use the proceeds to continue to sing for another 40 years.

Tickets to the concerts and gala are available
