Tucson, Arizona – Pima Community College performing arts department presents the Chorale & College Singers Holiday Concert under the direction of Benjamin Sorenson. The concert features two choirs: the Chorale and the College Singers. The program highlights Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” set to music by Ken Darby. Clement penned the poem in 1882 for his family, introducing the “jolly old elf” and the reindeer’s names, and creating a delightful description of Christmas anticipation that has survived generations of children. Other holiday program selections include “The Many Moods of Christmas” by Robert Shaw and Robert Russell Bennett that includes “Good Christian Men, Rejoice,” “Silent Night,” “Patapan” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” Other selections are “Still, Still, Still” by Norman Luboff and the Alfred Burt Carols—“Caroling, Caroling;” “All On a Christmas Morning;” “We’ll Dress the House” and “ Ah, Bleak and Chill the Wintry Wind.”
 Sorenson has been directing the Chorale & College Singers since 1978. He performs regularly with the Arizona Opera Company and has prepared choruses professionally for the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the Arizona Opera Company.  
The PCC Chorale & College Singers concert is open to the public. Tickets are available at the Center for the Arts box office, located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson, (just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary’s Road which turns into Anklam Road). Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance. For more information call 520-206-6986, e-mail <> , or
