The concert will include performances by the Stockton Chorale, as well as sets featuring the complete family of choruses supported by the Chorale organization: Master Chorale, Youth Chorale, Valley Youth Chamber Choir, and the Stockton Singers.
They will be joined by Tuba Express, a quartet of local musicians whose unique instrumentation delivers that classic holiday brass sound that simply must be heard in person. Tuba Express features low brass specialists Chris Andersoneuphonium, Molly Hazelwood-euphonium, Brian Schlegel-tuba, and Rob Barnes-tuba.
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”.
The Stockton Chorale, founded in 1952, is a nearly 80-member auditioned community chorus of singers from the Central Valley, Contra Costa County and the Sierra Foothills.
