JACKSON, WY— Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir has performed plenty of holiday concerts in its 15 years, but you’ve never heard one like this before.
Cathedral Voices and the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra are proud to present “Harmony for the Holidays,” a free holiday concert that celebrates music and all its capabilities, Friday December 14 and Sunday December 16.
This year’s concert is a delightful blend of traditional and contemporary. It honors tradition in many ways—like the long-standing tradition of collaborating with the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra and the Jackson Hole Brass Quintet, and traditional music including a Cantata by J.S. Bach. But it is also full of contemporary flare that is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
Audiences will surely recognize, for example, holiday classics such as “Silent Night.” But they’ve likely never heard them as composed by Pentatonix, an award-winning acapella group that incorporates vocal percussion (yeah, beatboxing) and vocal riffs into otherwise traditional songs. We dare you not to dance with us during “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
The choir will also sing one song accompanied by chiming crystal glasses. Sharing a stage with the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Hole Brass Quintet, AND a special appearance from a children’s choir this year, the show is a true musical spectacle from start to finish.
“We’re extremely excited for these concerts at Walk Festival Hall,” says Artistic Director Laura Huckin. “The variety of sounds and harmonies—some quite familiar and others strikingly new—is what makes this collaboration so special.” The evening will be filled with sounds from brass, strings, voices, tuned water glasses, and bodhran, just to name a few
Plus, Huckin adds, “there’s no better place to enjoy festive music” than Walk Festival Hall.
Best of all, performances are FREE, but $10 suggested donations are greatly appreciated. Celebrate the season with Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir in their 15th Anniversary Season, alongside the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra and Jackson Hole Brass Quintet, for Harmony for the Holidays. Two chances to see the magic: Friday, December 14 at 7 p.m., and Sunday December 16 at 4 p.m. at Walk Festival Hall.
