Join Music Director Michael Slon and 85 of our community’s finest singers for this beloved Charlottesville holiday tradition.
This year’s concert will feature John Rutter’s exuberant Gloria with orchestra, as well as traditional favorites such as “The First Nowell” and “Jingle Bells” and new arrangements of holiday classics from The Nutcracker and A Charlie Brown Christmas. We know this holiday community favorite will delight our audiences!
We hope you will bring your whole family to the historic Downtown Mall to join in the community spirit of Christmas as The Oratorio Society steps onto the stage once again.
