Pass Chorale "Celebration of Christmas"

The Pass Chorale and orchestra will present their annual Celebration of Christmas concert on December 9, 2018 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Banning. The featured work, "The Bells of Christmas,"is by Cherry Valley composer and performer, Phillip Marcizewski. It is based on the text or some Christmas carols, but with very different vocal and instrumental treatment. This is the first time the work will be performed and Phillip is now working on the orchestra parts. It is a joy leaning this piece!

But wait, there's more! There will be several Christmas anthems and our traditional Carol Sing-Along! This is always a very moving way to get into the Christmas spirit.

And there's a wonderful reception with great refreshments too.
