Holidays with Dessoff: Welcome Yule!

Sunday, December 9, 2018, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Brooklyn

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time (New York Today) for its “full-bodied sound and suppleness (The New York Times),” The Dessoff Choirs today announced its annual holiday concert series. Now in its 94th year, The Dessoff Choirs continues to wow audiences with its seasonal repertoire performed in some of New York City’s most beautiful churches. This season’s offerings include a sing-in of Handel’s Messiah, contemporary arrangement of carols, and a rare performance of the nine-movement Christmas cantata The Ballad of the Brown King with music by African-American composer Margaret Bonds and text by writer Langston Hughes.
