Join the Boulder Chorale for a celebration of the holiday season. This annual musical extravaganza features over 200 singers from our six adult and children’s choirs. This year’s concert has an Americana twist, including the music of Dolly Parton, drawing on the shared musical traditions that come together in the character and soul of American folk and bluegrass music. The concert rounds out with festive songs from many traditions, and an audience sing-along of traditional Holiday carols.  This is a Boulder favorite you won’t want to miss!
