Pacific Chorale’s “Tis the Season!” lights up the holidays…with a visit from Santa

Pacific Chorale’s beloved family-friendly holiday extravaganza “Tis the Season!” will fill the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall with festive musical cheer and delightful sonic wonder.

“Jingle Bells,” “Feliz Navidad,” “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World,” “White Christmas” and “Silent Night” are among the cherished holiday carols and traditional favorites that will be sung to glorious perfection by 85 members of the Chorale, under the baton of Artistic Director Robert Isad, in two performances on Sunday, Dec. 19 at 5 p.m. and Monday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m.

The Chorale, considered one of the nation’s leading choirs, also performs National Medal of Arts recipient Morten Lauriden’s ethereal “O Magnum Mysterium,” one of the most frequently performed choral works in modern history; “Gloria” from Ji-Hoon Park’s “Lightning Bug” Mass; and Bob Chilcott’s “Angel Voices Ever Singing.” Plus, word from the North Pole is that Santa Claus himself plans to swing by the concert.
