The Sangre de Cristo Chorale will present its winter concert Carols of the Southwest, 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, at the United Church of Los Alamos, 2525 Canyon Road.
Conrad Susa’s Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest, is the centerpiece of this performance. This 10-movement work is a magical setting of folk songs from this culturally rich and very broad region.
Beautifully scored for chorus, harp, marimba and guitar, it will feature guest instrumentalists Angela Gabriel, Ross Hamlin and David Glen Ponder. Hear other seasonal works and choral favorites by Benjamin Britten, Morten Lauridsen, Sergei Rachmaninov and R. Vaughan Williams and more.
In its 39th Season, the 45-member Sangre de Cristo Chorale is under the direction of Andrew Schmidt and accompanied by Los Alamos-native Nate Salazar. Another Carols of the Southwest concert will be performed 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10 in Santa Fe, at First Presbyterian Church, 208 Grant Ave.
Discounts are available online at sdcchorale.org until the day of the performance. At the door, adults are $20, students 18 and under are free; over 18 are $10.
