Chicago a cappella Online Holiday Party
December 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 7:40 pm$8
Join Chicago a cappella for their first Online Holiday Party, a streaming holiday concert event taking place on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m., featuring live solo performances, video performances from previous holiday concerts, and two new virtual choir video performances by the ensemble’s outstanding vocalists. Tickets are $8.
The 40-minute event will be hosted by four of the ensemble’s singers — Cari Plachy, Emily Price, Ace Gangoso and Joe Labozetta — who will do live solo performances of some of their favorite holiday songs, including “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The other singers will provide personal holiday greetings.
The event will also feature two newly-created virtual choir performances: “Ave Maria” by 20th Century Spanish composer Javier Busto, and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” arranged by Paul Langford, which will have the lyrics on the screen to allow the audience to sing along.
In addition, audiences will see three video performances from previous holiday concerts: “Carol of the Bells,” arranged by Paul Langford, and “Jingle a cappella,” by James Clemens, both of which were performed in 2019, and Jonathan Miller’s “Jingle Bells Hallelujah Chorus,” from 2011.
