A Chorale Christmas: Navidad
Dec. 20, 2022
The Phoenix Chorale performed their holiday program “A Chorale Christmas: Navidad” December 15th through December 18th across the valley. Classical Arizona PBS had the privilege of recording them at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church on Friday, December 16th. Arizona Encore listeners can hear the program in its entirety on air at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20.
The Chorale’s performance features a unique program that highlights Arizona’s Hispanic roots. Artistic Director Christopher Gabbitas will also be making a special appearance to chat about the music. This program will be available on DTV 8.5 Classical Arizona PBS, 89.5 K-BACH, and KNAU Arizona Public Radio in Northern Arizona. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the program on-demand via the Classical Arizona PBS mobile app and via PBS Passport starting Wednesday, December 21st.
We had an opportunity to sit down with Phoenix Chorale Artistic Director Christopher Gabbitas a couple of days before the ensemble began their concert tour around the valley. Hear our conversation about the holiday program, what makes the chorale unique, and what to look forward to in the spring.
