PBC’s Holiday Series, "Transcendent Winter," transports you to a world of cultural diversity and contemporary reinterpretations of beloved holiday classics. The program will showcase expertly crafted music featuring a chamber orchestra, solo artists, alumni, and audience members in harmony with PBC choristers. A highlight of the series will be the world premiere of "Mwanga Mkali Aita (The Bright Light Calls)," by Arizona composer Michael Bryson. This exciting and energetic piece was awarded the 2nd-place prize in our 2023 New Works Rising Choral Composition Competition.

Festival activities will include professional development opportunities, an adult choir for educators and community members, and our Festival honor choir for 4th-6th grade students.

This series will take you on a musical journey with spellbinding a cappella and instrumental performances. The program will also feature the world premiere of "Foreign Lands," by Polish composer Zuzanna Koziej. This delightful new piece for treble voices was awarded the 3nd-place prize in our 2023 New Works Rising Choral Composition Competition.
