Phoenix Chorale to Travel Around the Valley with A CHORALE CHRISTMAS: SILENT NIGHT
The Grammy award-winning Phoenix Chorale brings its delightful tradition, A Chorale Christmas, for concerts around the Valley.
This year, the Chorale will celebrate the holidays with special contemplation of the world's most iconic carol, Silent Night. Truly one of the most familiar and beloved of all holiday hymns, Silent Night, or Stille Nacht, was first penned in 1816 for a small pilgrimage church in Austria.
Commemorating this 200th anniversary, Phoenix Chorale's Christmas program will be filled with unique arrangements of this evocative hymn, conjuring peaceful images for the holiday season.
A Chorale Christmas will also feature inspiring holiday selections from Kenneth Leighton, Philip Stopford, Michael McGlynn, Palestrina, and Poulenc as well as familiar favorites like "I'll Be Home for Christmas."
The Phoenix Chorale holiday concerts have become a tradition for the Valley - proving "It just isn't Christmas until you've heard us sing!"

The GRAMMY-winning Phoenix Chorale, under the direction of Artistic Director Charles Bruffy, is regarded as one of the finest choral ensembles in North America. What began in 1958 as a small study group of singers became a fully professional choir in 1992 made up of Arizona residents: highly educated and trained singers, teachers and professionals. In 2004, the Phoenix Chorale became the first North American choir to record for the U.K.'s prestigious Chandos Records and since then, the Chorale's recordings have earned a total of ten GRAMMY nominations and three GRAMMY wins. The Phoenix Chorale is ensemble in residence at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Phoenix and is sponsored in parth through grants and funding from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
