"A Holiday Spectacular"

Have you ever heard the "Nutcracker Suite" sung? Probably not, since the original "Nutcracker" by Tchaikovsky is a ballet. The San Diego Festival Chorus sings it!

Here is a holiday event you won't want to miss!

Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite" is sung in a unique choral/instrumental arrangement rarely performed.

There will also be ballerinas.

The 70 voice Chorus and 45 piece orchestra will also perform the choral masterpiece, Mass in C Major by Beethoven. And included for Hanukah is an unusual vocal prayer, "Song of Galilee".
