TUCSON ARIZONA BOYS CHORUS ANNOUNCES ANNUAL HOLIDAY CONCERT
The Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus will present its annual Holiday Concert on Saturday, December 17 at 3:00pm and 7:30pm at the UA School of Music Crowder Hall. Under the direction of Julian Ackerley and accompanied by a small orchestral ensemble, the choristers will perform music of the season including Christmas carols, sacred songs and Hanukkah selections.
A distinctive feature will be the joining of the Touring Chorus with the Young Men's Ensemble performing movements from Magnificat in D by Johann Sebastian Bach. Other selections on the concert include Silent Night, Do You Hear What I Hear, S'vivon, Deck The Halls, Let It Snow, White Christmas and the stunning a cappella version of Carol of the Bells, which has become a signature piece for the Boys Chorus through the years.
The Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus Holiday Concert is a popular Tucson tradition that began in 1939 with a Christmas Eve concert performed by eight boys under the direction of founder Eduardo Caso. This year's program features boys ages 6 through 21 who are members of the Touring Chorus, the TowneSingers, the Training Chorus, the Cadet Choir, and the Young Men's Ensemble. Assistant Conductor, Gavin Ely, joins Dr. Ackerley in leading the singers.
The Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus, known internationally for its traditional boychoir repertoire and western flair, has performed throughout the United States and the world. Their local holiday concert is an established and popular event during the festive holiday season.
Reserved seat tickets for the Holiday Concert are $20.00 premium seating, $15.00 general and $8.00 for children under 12 and are available
