About the Event
Written in the face of Nazi aggression, Hugo Distler’s Christmas cantata is a landmark of German sacred music. Its reflective notes contrast with the obvious joy of carols from Charles Collins*, Sasha Johnson Manning* and Ivan Moody*.

In Progressions, the Chamber Chorus explores transitions in time, space, emotion and even element. We reaffirm our commitment to unaccompanied singing by performing a cappella works from beloved composers as well as newer pieces sure to garner a place in the unaccompanied pantheon. Our audiences know us for stretching ourselves artistically, and we fulfill that mission with new music from Kerensa Briggs, Yakov Gubanov, and Dobrinka Tabakova, all of whom will fly here for the premieres. We also revisit our past commissions with fresh eyes.
The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus presents the finest a cappella choral works in the region's most distinctive buildings, seeking to entertain, educate, and inspire.
