Holidays at Cal Performances

From Christmas hymns to carols from around the world, gospel arrangements and seasonal pop favorites, and beloved dance performances like Mark Morris Dance Groups’ The Hard Nut, the Cal Performances season offers an inviting assortment of holiday entertainment for all ages. Recent holiday season highlights have included Cantus in All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914; and the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra performing Handel’s Messiah.

This November and December, Cal Performances invites you to celebrate the season among family and friends with the Vienna Boys Choir in its well-loved Christmas in Vienna program, Canadian Brass with its anniversary program Making Spirits Bright for 50 Years and Counting!, and Damien Sneed’s uplifting Joy to the World: A Christmas Musical Journey.
