In addition to the concert, attendees will be treated to strolling carolers, holiday decorations, telescopes for stargazing, and enticing desserts. MCC’s Red Mountain campus provides the setting for this festive holiday event with the beautiful Sonoran Desert as a backdrop.
The Songs of the Season concert is an annual event that features a variety of both common and uncommon holiday choral pieces. This year’s concert includes John Leavitt’s choral work, “What Child Is This?” A local church choir from the Sun Valley Community Church in Tempe will also be joining MCC choral groups.
Bennett said Songs of the Season is a diverse program format that allows for options, musically speaking.
“The result has been a very successful annual event that gives us the opportunity to do works from the vast repertoire of music that has been written for the Christmas and holiday season, rather than getting locked into just one type or style of music,” Bennett said.
Two Songs of the Season performances are scheduled, on Dec. 6 and 7, in the Rehearsal and Performance Center (S-140) of the Saguaro building at the MCC Red Mountain Campus, 7110 E. McKellips Road, Mesa.
Dec. 6 is an evening performance, with Concert at 7 p.m. and Desserts at 8:30. Cost: $10. Also, a Family Discovery Series Lecture takes place at 7 p.m., with stargazing after the lecture. Free.
Dec. 7 is a matinee performance from 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. with no refreshments. Cost: $5.
Join the MCC Red Mountain choirs to celebrate the holiday season.
