About The Concert
From the candlelit chant procession to the triumphant gospel conclusion, A Chanticleer Christmas cleaves to its founder Louis Botto’s original vision to offer joy and transcendence through beautifully sung music of all centuries from classical to carols. The joy of our Christmas season comes from sharing with you the same feeling about this precious moment in the year.
