The first half of the program will include selections sung by the Chamber Singers –The First Nowell, arr. Mack Wilberg; Wassail Song by Ralph Vaughan Williams; Stille Nacht, arr. A.J. Wulf (a member of the Chamber Singers); and Cradle Hymn by Kim Andre Arneson – and carols for audience singing.

The Chamber Singers of the Colorado Springs Choral Society is currently in their sixth season. The 29-member ensemble, composed of auditioned singers from within the larger Chorale membership, was founded by Director-Conductor Kimberley Schultz in 2010 with the mission to support education and community outreach, encouraging young people to pursue their singing interests beyond high school and college, and to recruit singers for the Choral Society. The Chamber Singers perform a wide variety of choral literature from across the centuries.
