Una Vocis & NordKor Christmas concert 🎄❄🎵

December 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$5 – $15

Choral fans across North Iowa are in for a treat on December 16 as Una Vocis Choral Ensemble joins musical forces with NordKor Youth Choir in their Christmas concert, Angels and Shepherds. Under the direction of Una Vocis Artistic Director Dennis Lee and NordKor Director Melissa Shallberg, the choirs will perform a program that features an array of choral works as well as inviting the audience to join in singing Christmas carols featuring angels and shepherds. The concert will take place in the beautifully acoustic Holy Family Catholic Church, 714 North Adams, Mason City.

Guest instrumentalists Acacia Scott (harp), Rene Recinos (flute), and Skyler Lee (oboe) will add their talents to the program.

From international Christmas tunes to Shaker harmonies to soaring settings of traditional texts, the choirs will share works by renowned choral composers, including Carol Barnett, Kevin Siegfried, John Rutter, Dale Warland, and Stephen Paulus.  Angels and Shepherds brings together two of the finest choirs in the area for an evening of collaboration, fellowship, and music.
