A popular Greater Boston holiday tradition, this rousing program of music for chorus, soloists and instrumentalists features a mix of carols and sing-alongs as well as familiar holiday classics. The first-half centerpiece is American composer Daniel Gawthrop’s moving "This Child, This King" in a world premiere arrangement for male chorus timpani, keyboard and harp by Saengerfest music director emeritus Michael Driscoll. Another highlight is Conrad Susa's popular Spanish-influenced "Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest" for chorus, harp, guitar and marimba. Featured guest artists for both concerts include harpist Barbara Poeschl-Edrich, percussionist Brian Calhoon, and guitarist John Muratore.
