A Spectacular 2018-19 Season
The theme for our 35th Anniversary Season is Choral Classics Greatest Hits. We will feature many pieces performed by the West Valley Chorale in previous seasons and highlight recognizable “classical” choral music.
December Concerts - A Classical Christmas
Tuesday December 4th 7:00 pm – Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church in Sun City West
Thursday December 6th 7:00 pm- Faith Presbyterian Church in Sun City
Special Matinee Concert – Monday December 3rd 3:00 pm – Shepherd of the Hills
The Chorale will perform a special matinee concert on December 3rd. This will provide an opportunity for those who find it difficult to travel at night to see our performance. We will also reach out to assisted living facilities and nursing homes and encourage them to transport their residents to the concert. The concert will be shorter than our evening performances. Tickets will be $10 each at the door.
Highlights at all three performances include:
- Pieces from Handel’s Messiah
- Selections from Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols
- Selections from John Rutter’s Magnificat and Gloria
- Felix Mendelssohn’s There Shall a Star from Jacob Come Forth
- A sing-along of familiar Christmas carols
But Wait – There’s More!
On Sunday, December 16th, the Chorale will be performing the “Messiah” with the West Valley Symphony at the Valley Vista Performing Arts Center in Surprise, AZ. This performance is at 3:00 pm. Tickets are available through the West Valley Symphony Box Office. This concert is typically sold out so order your tickets by November 1st.
