Gracias Christmas Cantata
Gracias Choir & Orchestra
Dallas, TX – International Youth Fellowship is proud to present a special production of the Gracias Choir Christmas Cantata at the Intercontinental Hotel in Addison, Wednesday, January 4th at 7:00pm. The world renown Gracias Choir has presented this one of a kind performance to rave reviews on some of the world's most famous stages including the Sydney Opera House and Madison Square Garden. While audiences normally pay a premium to enjoy the performances, this special one night limited engagement is being offered to the residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex free of charge.
This special production will be comprised of four stages or themes that include: Christmas Carols - traditional songs we remember and love, The Nativity - Christ is born in Bethlehem, Family Christmas - a humorous and heart-warming Christmas folly, and The Grandeur of the Divine - a tour de force of perhaps the most recognized choral refrain of all time, "Hallelujah" by Handel.
Gracias Choir was founded in 2000 and has since increasingly gained recognition as a world class ensemble. In 2009 they won the grand prize at the International Choral Competition and the 2011 World International Choir Competition. They also recently completed a seven city tour of North America with performances in New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago, Winnepeg, Detroit, Lancaster, PA, and Bemiji, MN.
