Ohlone Chamber Singers Celebrate the 25th Annual Christmas at the Mission

Fremont, CA—This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Ohlone Chamber Singers, performing during the holiday season at Old Mission San Jose. This year the choir, accompanied by chamber orchestra, performs Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Magnificat.” Considered to be one of the grandest illustrations of Bach’s genius, this five part choral and orchestral piece was first performed on Christmas Day in 1723.

As in previous years, the audience joins in singing favorite Christmas carols as part of the performance. The concert ends with Bob Chilcott’s special arrangement of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” originally performed by the King’s Singers in Cambridge, England.

The Christmas at the Mission concerts have grown to be an annual family tradition. Don’t miss this 25th Anniversary Holiday Celebration.

Contact Jackie Whitehouse at 510-659-6158 or jwhitehouse@ohlone.edu for more information.
