The Dessoff Choirs Presents A Holiday Concert

The Dessoff Choirs

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time (New York Today) for its “full-bodied sound and suppleness (The New York Times),” The Dessoff Choirs celebrates the holiday season with a trio of festive concerts. Now in its 93rd year, The Dessoff Choirs continues to wow audiences with its seasonal repertoire and contemporary arrangement of carols performed in some of New York City’s most beautiful churches. This season’s offerings include a sing-in of Handel’s Messiah (the quintessential classical music highpoint of the Christmas season), Bernstein’s Simchu na celebrating the start of Hanukkah, and works by New York City-based composers: Ola Gjeilo, Nancy Wertsch, Gregg Smith, and James Bassi—to name a few.

Gregg Smith : Alleluia
Johannes Brahms : Drei geistliche Chore
Felix Mendelssohn : Hark the Herald Angels Sing
