Boys choir presents Christmas concert
The Moscow Boys Choir’s “Christmas Around the World” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center’s Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts.
The Moscow Boys Choir, founded in 1957, is among Russia’s most prestigious all-male choirs.
Their powerful sound showcases seasonal music from around the world as audiences are musically transported to faraway places across Europe, the Americas and more. Handpicked from more than 400 students at the famed Moscow Boys Capella, The Moscow Boys Choir features a careful blend of heavenly soprano voices with the rich resonance of bass, tenor and baritone sounds that bring a distinct Russian flavor to the choral experience.
The Moscow Boys Choir will light up the holidays with new and vibrant pieces, many sung in their language of origin and many beloved Christmas classics including “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” “Silver Bells” and their hauntingly beautiful rendition of “Silent Night.”
The Moscow Boys Choir “Christmas Around the World” is part of the 2012-13 Sondheim Artist Series and is presented by Pat and Barb McMahon, Green Building Supply, Global ID and KYOU-Fox 15.
Tickets are $22 for Zone 1, $18 for Zone 2, $15 for Zone 3 and youth tickets are $12 and available at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center Ticket Office, 472-2787 and www.FairfieldACC.com.
