Known for creating captivating and impactful choral experiences, this specially-curated sequence explores the poignancy of a war-torn Christmas through music by Ukrainian composers Valentin Silvestrov and Natalia Tsupryk, before finding consolation and hope in the anticipation of a new dawn in music from the choir’s seasonal album The Waiting Sky.
