Join us for the return of a beloved holiday tradition:
Christmas with CONCORA!

In the half century since Oxford University Press released the first volume of its popular sets of Carols for Choirs, these sparkling Christmas carol settings have become essential to the choral holiday repertoire. On Saturday, December 10, CONCORA presents a sleigh-full of these immortal a cappella carol arrangements by Sir David Willcocks, John Rutter, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and others. And in keeping with the “Christmas with CONCORA” tradition, you are invited to sing along with CONCORA in a number of favorite Christmas carols. Don't miss this holiday favorite, now in its 26th edition!
