O Night Divine! Christmas Music with Choral Arts
The Kennedy Center Concert Hall
Embrace the magic of the Christmas season from the sheer excitement of a morning in community with one another to the snowy lilts of a lullaby. The radiant voices of the Chorus accompanied by the lush sound of a full orchestra and bass-baritone soloist Carl DuPont capture the serene and the joyous with the season’s vibrant treasure-trove of winter carols and Christmas classics at the Kennedy Center.
Get into the spirit with our YouTube playlist of holiday music inspired by the program.
