CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS
Each Christmas season at Brigham Young University over 500 vocalists and instrumentalists celebrate the season in song. Handpicked from the largest private student body in the country, these students comprise four nationally and internationally acclaimed choirs and the highly praised Philharmonic Orchestra.
These musical organizations are known for their unity, due in part to the superb technical proficiency achieved under the hands of choral conductors Rosalind Hall, Dr. Andrew Crane, Jean Applonie, and Dr. Sonja Poulter, and Philharmonic conductor Kory Katseanes. But there is more. Students and conductors share a strong belief in the spiritual character of music. As one critic observed, “The spiritual element is present in each piece the choirs sing.” This results in performances that are alive, fresh, and heartfelt—performances that overcome boundaries and draw people together.
The music presented here was recorded during the live performances of the December 2018 and 2019 Celebration of Christmas concerts.
