Join the Western Colorado Chorale on its holiday journey through the ages with the presentation of “Christmas Music of a Thousand Years.”

The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 19–20, in the Love Recital Hall of Colorado Mesa University’s Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.

The chorale’s 32nd season carols concert will feature a diverse selection of Christmas music from each century, beginning with the 12th century to the present. Musical styles including chant, Medieval, Renaissance, American Colonial, spirituals, Irish, traditional carols and jazz will create “a tapestry of sounds and harmonies that will make for a delightful evening,” a news release said.

A number of smaller ensembles, directed by members of the chorale who are trained and experienced in choral conducting, will perform and some of them will wear accessories relating to the century their music represents. The audience also is encouraged to dress up in the attire of their favorite historical period from the Renaissance to the 21st century.

The 45-voice chorale will be accompanied by concert pianist Kathryn Mientka and organist Martha Sandford-Heyns, the release said.

Tickets cost $18 for adults, $15 for seniors or $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased in advance at gjso.org, from any chorale member or at the door.
