We invite you to join us for a festive new tradition, as Travis Jürgens leads members of the Boulder Phil and the Boulder Phil Chorus in classical holiday favorites! The program includes familiar music by Bach, a work written by Corelli to be performed on Christmas night in 1690, and Vaughan Williams' gorgeous setting of an English folk melody known to many as "What Child is This."

Following intermission, the concert concludes with the entire Christmas portion and "Hallelujah" chorus from Handel's Messiah. This performance of Handel's great oratorio features guest vocal soloists along with the Boulder Phil Chorus, comprised of more than 60 accomplished singers from the finest choral organizations throughout the Boulder-Denver area.
