"Christmas With the Chorale" on December 12, 2015 at St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church in Richardson was a wonderful success. Thank you to each of you came and celebrated with us.

Our show featured traditional carols and holiday selections that offered a wide mix of musical styles. We sang unique arrangements of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", and "Here We Come A-Wassailing", along with a medley of songs from the Broadway Musical Elf. We thank you for joining in on the fun during the sing along. 

This 60th Anniversary season, our returning guest performer was Dallas Baptist University's Associate Dean of Fine Arts and Chairman of the Music Department, Wes Moore.  Dr. Moore was the featured soloist in "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" as arranged by our Artistic Director, Melanie Moore.  

The Chorale was also honored to have Chorale alumni, Barbara Herteg, Rae Gene Mungioli, and Merina White, return to perform with us. Barbara, as always, was an amazing MC and Rae Gene & Merina did such a beautiful job interpreting thru sign language. 

We are anticipating our most exciting season yet! If you think our Christmas Concert was awesome, just wait until you see what we have in store for you in the spring.
