Christmas Concert - December 13

The Pass Chorale Christmas Concert will feature the Bach Magnificat with soloists, Penny Quinn, Lynn Ivey, Abir Naim, Tyler Johnson, and Rhonert Pascual, Chorus, and Orchestra!
The Magnificat is Mary's song and is very beautiful! We will be adding the interpolations that Bach wrote especially for the Christmas season.

In addition, we will perform several lovely Christmas anthems. We are especially glad to premier another work, Star of Wonder, by Banning's own Bill Bell.
