San Diego Festival Chorus performs “Messe Solonnelle” (St. Cecilia Mass) by Charles Gounod, written in 1855 to honor the Patron Saint of Music. This mass was chosen by the Vatican to celebrate Christmas in Rome. The final movement of this work, “Domine Salvum”, was later added to celebrate the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte as Emperor of France. It is seldom performed in concert, but it will be at our upcoming Sunday, December 9th performance!
The second part of our performance will include the best of Christmas carols in unique arrangements by our 85-member chorus and 48-piece symphony orchestra. Finally, we will raise your Christmas spirits with happy Holiday songs from “Variations on Jingle Bells” to “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”.
The program has something for everyone. Performed in the College Avenue Baptist Church, with its excellent acoustics, it will be an unforgettable experience.
