Heralding Christmas 2020


Skagit Valley Chorale will not be performing a Christmas concert. Knowing that we will not be standing on the stage of McIntyre Hall on these dates, we’ll mark the occasion safe in our homes and will look forward to the time when we can safely gather with you again – hopefully Christmas 2021. On that day, what singing we will do as we revisit our favorite pieces from Christmas concerts past! We’ll sing the joyous and raucous “Betelehemu” again, share selections from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s haunting All-Night Vigil, and revisit the powerful pathos of Pentatonix. Chorale accompanist Stephanie Bethea and guest percussionist Patrick Roulet will add groove and vibrancy to our sound, and guest tenor Eric Jeffords will return for highlights including the rollicking “Gloria” from Ariel Ramirez’ Misa Criolla and “coming home” for the sweet and gentle Irish tune, “Christmas Memories”.

Mrs. Angela Mazur accepts the donation of a Kohler digital piano on behalf of Sedro Woolley's Evergreen Elementary School music program from representatives of the Skagit Valley Chorale.
