Hear the voice of an angelâoperatic sensation Angel Blue! Whatâs more, youâll enjoy hearing Cal Phil Foundation Young Artist Performance Award Winners soprano Emily Dyer and mezzo Clare Snodgrass and the Cal Phil Chorale. All that AND a visit from Santa! Thereâs no better way to kick off your holidays.
Itâs impossible to think of one without the other. Nothing accompanies Christmas like music!
And where else but at Cal Phil can you hearâin one performance!âsounds of the season ranging from immortal classics like Tchaikovskyâs The Nutcracker and Handelâs Messiah to Leroy Andersonâs beloved Sleigh Ride?
They do more, however, than take a romp through the snow. Their performance of excerpts from the Christmastime opera, HĂ¤nsel and Gretel, will introduce two young artists embarking upon what will undoubtedly become major careers: 18 year old mezzo soprano, Clare Snodgrass, as HĂ¤nsel and soprano Emily Dyer, 16, as Gretel. Both are recipients of the Cal Phil Foundationâs Young Artist Performance AwardâŚwith good reason, as youâll realize from the first note they sing!
The other special guest doesnât singâat least not that weâre aware of, although at Cal Phil, you never know! The Maestro just may coax a note or two out of him. But, whatever happens, our featured performer has long earned bravos for his inimitable interpretation of Ho-Ho-HoâŚ.
Let Cal Phil help you make this your merriestâand most musicalâChristmas yet.
First of all, come early. Carolers will perform in the lobby prior to the performance! Better yet, YOU get to perform tooâduring the Messiah sing-along.
