Artist-in-Residence Eric Whitacre guest conducts a performance of the most sublime Christmas choral music in the world. Audiences will recognize the familiar medieval carol In dulci jubilo (In sweet rejoicing), woven throughout the program – from Renaissance and Baroque madrigals to modern-day motets. Closing your eyes, you may even imagine yourself inside a candlelit cathedral as the purity of voices from the LA Master Chorale rise from the stage of Walt Disney Concert Hall.
