This pre-Christmas Eve musical celebration will feature a variety of seasonal, classical and folk music. The 11-member SEISO Chamber Orchestra will be joined by guest artist, Soprano Donna DeBose, and Countertenor, Antonio Souza. The concert will also feature Don Hughes on Piccolo Trumpet performing the Fasch Concerto for trumpet, two oboes and strings.

While the concert features a variety of music, much of it is seasonal music associated with the Christmas celebration throughout the centuries. In addition to the classical works, the program will feature a tribute to the recently deceased with Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah”, music from the Peanuts Christmas Special and music by The Piano Guys.

The group is under the direction of Robert McConnell, who also performs as an oboist with the Chamber Orchestra.
