Festive Vox Abound
If your holiday celebrations call for choral accompaniment, I heartily recommend the Festival of Voices. Not the one in your head, silly, but rather a concert of the same name happening at Popejoy Hall (203 Cornell SE) on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 3pm. Albuquerque choral-conducting stalwart Roger Melone will direct the New Mexico Symphonic Chorus and host guest artists including the Albuquerque Youth Symphony and Chorus, the Albuquerque Junior Symphony Chorus and the Albuquerque Bel Canto Choir. These ensembles will joyfully perform works from Mendelssohn’s Opus 70, Elijah; Respighi’s Adoration of the Magi and Laud to the Nativity (featuring the vocal talents of sopranos Dana Bowersock-Ziegler and Karla Kollasch); Christmas Day by Gustav Holst; and a host of other holiday-themed choral creations. Tickets range in price from $12 to $40, and if you're in high school, you get in for five bucks with a valid ID. That’s quite a gift, considering the awesome vocal emanations set to appear that afternoon under the concert shell at PJH. (August March)
