 CCOC choirs Bel Canto (grades 7-12) and Bella Voce (adult women) will open the evening performances with a holiday musical collage that includes works by John Rutter and Eleanor Daley, a Canadian composer.  “Riu, Riu, Chiu”, a Spanish Carol, and a spirited arrangement of “Ding Dong! Merrily On High” will be sure to delight audience members.


The matinee performance will begin with holiday favorites as performed by CCOC’s younger singers in Cantiamo (grades 4-7), Preparatory Choir (grades 2 & 3), and Ready, Set, Sing!  (grades K & 1st).  These bright faces and lively singers will prepare the audience for the grand season ahead.
