about this event
The Valley Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir presents A Celebration of Music. This concert will feature a 50 voice choir, soloists, and a full orchestra with select Phoenix Symphony members. Robert Shaw’s “The Many Moods of Christmas” will be performed on the first half of the concert along with narration and other familiar Christmas music from soloists. The second half will be a fun look at secular Christmas music, including a jazzy “Variations on Jingle Bells,” “Santa Baby,” and “A Musicological Journey through the 12 Days of Christmas” (a hilarious parody with appearances by Handel, Vivaldi, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Wagner, and John Philip Sousa).
We will take you on a journey that celebrates the importance of music in our lives and how music enriches the holiday season. This event is graciously sponsored by the Valley Presbyterian Foundation.
