Kick off the holidays as Opera Birmingham presents Sounds of the Season, a concert of favorites both sacred and secular. Christmas carols from around the world will be a highlight of our Sounds of the Season concert, certain to put you in the holiday spirit. Birmingham is blessed with great musical talent, and we’re excited to feature two great singers, who will be joining our Opera Birmingham Chamber Chorus. Soprano Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk has performed around the country in concert and operatic repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Stravinsky, and her performance experience has helped UAB Opera achieve a number of national awards. With credits ranging from opera to Broadway to soul, tenor Elias Hendricks has performed on London’s West End and recently appeared on Britain’s Got Talent with his group Vox Fortura. This concert will feature some beautiful carol arrangements, most which will be familiar, with a few unique twists thrown in. Opera Birmingham is teaming up with the U.S. Marine Corps to provide toys for less fortunate children in the community this season through their TOYS FOR TOTS program. To participate, please bring a new, unwrapped toy to Sounds of the Season, and let's make sure EVERYONE has a Merry Christmas!
