Holidays a cappella 2021

Program created by Joe Labozetta / Music direction by Paul Nicholson

Come back to the comfort of our Holidays a cappella tradition with a brand-new collection of musical gifts. Hear rare choral treasures from Norway, the Republic of Georgia, and Puerto Rico, plus music for Chanukah, the spiritual “Sistah Mary,” and captivating new takes on beloved carols and seasonal favorites like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” Ensemble member Joe Labozetta has created a program rich with beautiful harmonies, meaningful messages, and energetic fun.
