STOCKTON - The Stockton Chorale will a “Make a Joyful Noise” for the Holidays on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 with performances under the direction of artistic director/conductor Magen Solomon.
The wonderfully varied program includes excerpts from the “Messiah” and carols, lullabies and popular holiday tunes.
The concert will include works performed by the Stockton Chorale, Master Chorale, Youth Chorale, and the Stockton Singers.
Joining the concert are the Tuba Express, local musicians with a unique instrumentation that delivers a rich sound that simply needs to be enjoyed in person to appreciate. The quartet features local low brass specialists Chris Anderson-euphonium, Molly Hazelwood-euphonium, Brian Schlegel-tuba, and Rob Barnes-tuba.
Each year the Stockton Chorale Holiday Concerts are enjoyed by large audiences who hear both the familiar and the sublime. The audience is also invited to sing along when the Chorale performs such familiar tunes as “Joy to the World” and “Angels We Have Heard on High”. With the Tuba Express both accompanying the Chorales and performing their own signature pieces, the audience will enjoy this concert as a highlight of the holiday season.
This double performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, at the Central United Methodist Church, 3700 Pacific Avenue, Stockton and at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, at St John’s Episcopal Church, 1055 S. Lower Sacramento Road, Lodi.
