Get in Christmas spirit with the Claremont Chorale

The opening concert of the Claremont Chorale’s 2012-2013 season will feature Ariel Ramirez’s folk drama, Navidad Nuestra (“Our Nativity”), which retells the Christmas story and forms the framework for a variety of Christmas music from ancient times up to the present.

In the concert will be held Friday, December 1 at 3 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m. The Chorale will also be joined by guitarists and percussionists, together providing a diverse and joyous holiday concert. The  performance will be held at the Claremont Presbyterian Church.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for students and seniors. Season tickets are also available.

The Claremont Chorale was founded in 1968 and is currently in its 45th year.  It is composed of about 60 experienced choral vocalists, chosen by audition.  Gregory Norton has been its conductor and music director for the last 20 years, and its accompanist is Barbara Durost, a faculty member at the Claremont Community School of Music. 

The Chorale presents 3 concerts each season, all chosen to provide a variety of high-quality choral music to enrich the musical experience and enjoyment of residents in the Pomona-Claremont area.
