This cherished annual event creates a holy experience for audiences in the awe-inspiring Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis. In 2017, the birth of Christ as a refugee story is more poignant and relevant than ever. It is told though an eclectic array of poetry, exquisite choral music, and carols sung by all.
New works by Cesar Alejandro Carillo, Michael Engelhardt, and Kevin Siegfried meet traditional favorites by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Dale Warland, David Cherwien, and Pavel Chesnokoff’s beautiful and haunting “Salvation is Created” to highlight the program.
