Sierra Master Chorale: “Caroling, Caroling Now We Go”

THE JOYOUS VOICES OF INCONCERT’S Sierra Master Chorale are a highlight of the holiday concert season in our region. From Beethoven’s ““Hallelujah Chorus” to Burt’s “Caroling, Caroling” and Biegel’s “Hanukah Fantasy,” this year’s concert is an eclectic and inspiring program. InConcert Sierra’s fall and winter lineup also is impressive:

October 21 Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott

November 18 Philadelphia Brass
From the stage of the Royal Albert Hall to the heights of the Bolivian Andes, Philadelphia Brass has delighted audiences with virtuosity, artistry, and cohesiveness seldom heard in live chamber music. They have been enthusiastically praised for their diversity of repertoire, technical brilliance, and superb musicality.

December 15-16 Sierra Master Chorale and Orchestra
