We always look forward to our Welcome Christmas concerts for the joy and warmth that this music brings to everyone. In 2017 we wanted to celebrate some of the many, many composers living in our Twin Cities (Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota): what an abundance of marvelous talent we have here! Some of the music will be familiar settings of old hymns and carols while others will be new to you-and that is one of the joys of programming a Welcome Christmas program! We know you will be delighted with the colorful variety of music our composers offer. It is also a delight to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our Welcome Christmas Carol Contest (supported by the American Composers Forum and the Jerome Foundation) with two new composers and their charming music for a cappella chorus. Best wishes to each of you; may this Advent and Christmas season bring you joy and happiness.
