Join us for beautiful arrangements of traditional carols, such as The Wexford Carol, Lo’ How a Rose E’er Blooming, Joy to the World, and Go Tell It On The Mountain. Celebrate the Christmas season with the sixteenth century sounds of Giovanni Gabrieli’s Beata es Virgo Maria, and the Spanish villancico, Riu, Riu Chiu. Reminisce about family Christmas seasons long ago with such secular favorites as I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Let it Snow, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Baby, and many more. Performances also include Guest Artist Megan Koch, the Peoria Area Civic Chorale’s Youth Chorus and our three, talented Young Artist Competition winners. As always, our Friday night performance will also include performances by two outstanding, 90-voice Youth Choruses, the Children’s Festival Chorus and the Junior High Festival Chorus, representing young talented singers from throughout Central Illinois. If you’re looking for a seasonal experience for the entire family, take a break from the winter cold and attend the Peoria Area Civic Chorale’s An American Family Christmas on December 13th & 14th at Five Points Washington.
