Opening with a prelude 30 minutes prior to each performance, the Prometheus Chamber Orchestra joins BCCS for the first time for our Annual Festival of Christmas Music, featuring Johann Sebastian Bach's celebratory Magnificat. This setting of the words of Mary from the Gospel according to Luke is the most popular and best known of the Gospel canticles. Traditional carols of the season will also be performed. As always, audience members will be invited to join in singing some favorite holiday songs.
