The Santa Barbara Choral Society hosts its 70th Anniversary Season with Hallelujah Project 5. This family-friendly, holiday event returns for the fifth year to the Lobero stage Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10. The show has an exquisite blend of traditional holiday music performed by a chorus and orchestra and features the angelic voices of Santa Barbara’s children. The repertoire chosen by Artistic Director, JoAnne Wasserman, is sure to please music lovers of every age and, the year, includes Vivaldi’s Gloria as the classical centerpiece anchoring a program of new, vibrant settings of traditional holiday music and seasonal favorite.
There is something for everyone to enjoy with The Santa Barbara Choral Society. Audience members of all ages can look forward to the orchestrated version of Clement Moore’s beloved class ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, which in past years has been performed by comedienne Fannie Flagg, actresses Stephanie Zimbalist and Alison Sweeney, and the grand dame of movie musicals, Shirley Jones. Each year, loyal attendees buzz about who the celebrity feature will be and this year’s special guest will be film and television actress Angela Cartwright. Cartwright is known for her spectacular roles in Make Room for Daddy, the Sound of Music, and Lost in Space. Kids attending can look forward to an appearance by the Jolly Old Elf.
