Carols in the California7:00 pm December 14, 2013
A Family Holiday Tradition! Artistic Director Elena Sharkova and the Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale present the 9th Annual Carols in the California, an exciting and festive program featuring Too Hot to Handel: The Gospel Messiah.
Prepare yourself: Orff’s powerhouse setting of medieval verses celebrating the sensual life and lamenting the turns of fate is bawdy, dramatic, tender - and breathtaking. We perform it with three choirs and orchestra, for an unforgettable event. To open, virtuoso J.P. Jofre joins fellow Argentine Maestro Vieu and the orchestra to premiere his concerto for the earthy, resonant bandoneon – the soul of tango.
