Celebrate the Season with Music!

Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir and Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra perform two free

concerts this month.

 

JACKSON, WY.  The Community is invited to two free and festive holiday concerts, Sounds

of the Season, by Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir and the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra

this holiday season!  This is the second collaborative concert by these two ensembles and

will include appearances by Treble Voices – an all-women’s vocal ensemble – and the Jackson

Hold Brass Quintet.  Classic repertoire and festive holiday favorites round out this program

performed by local talent.  Performances take place Sunday, December 16 at 3 PM and Tuesday,

December 18 at 7 PM in Walk Festival Hall, Teton Village.  Admission is free, all ages are

welcome.  For more information, please visit www.cathedralvoices.org.

 

I’m delighted by this opportunity for Cathedral Voices to celebrate the holidays with the

Symphony Orchestra,” said Laura Huckin, Artistic Director for Cathedral Voices Chamber

Choir.  “Each ensemble is offering something unique for audiences to enjoy.  The choirs

are exploring classic holiday favorites – many in their original languages – from other parts

of the world.”

 

The concert program features a variety of repertoire, including Sergei Rachmaninoff’s

Ave Maria (Bogorditse Devo) for a cappella voices, Richard Strauss’s Solemn Entry

arranged for brass, and a Thomas Morley renaissance round arranged for strings.  The concert

program closes with a lively Nigerian carol including percussion performed by members from

Woontanara West African Dance and Drum.

 

Sounds of the Season will be performed twice – Sunday, December 16 at 3 PM, and again on

Tuesday, December 18 at 7 PM.  Both concerts are in Walk Festival Hall, and are free.  For

more information, including parking details, be sure to visit www.cathedralvoices.org.

 

These free community music concerts would not be possible without the support of the

Wyoming Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Old Bill’s Fun Run, Cultural

Council of Jackson Hole/Town and County Arts for All, and many individuals and businesses

that support free, live music in Teton County.
