NOVA Chorale public concert features popular Christmas carols

December 13, 2013

The NOVA Chorale celebrates the holiday season at Loyola University New Orleans with “Hope: There is a Flower,” a free concert of beloved Christmas carols Sunday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Holy Name of Jesus Church on Loyola’s main campus. The event is open to the public.

Conducted by Loyola’s Meg Frazier, D.M.A., the chorale’s a cappella program will feature new renditions of popular Christmas songs, including composer Ola Gjeilo's versions of “Silent Night” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” among others. Several guest soloists will also perform, including Loyola alumnus Casey Candebat ’09 in Adolphe Adam’s “O Holy Night.” A New Orleans native and award-winning tenor, Candebat is a featured artist with the Merola Opera Program, the training arm of the San Francisco Opera Center.

The NOVA Chorale is a semi-professional, community-based chamber choir based in New Orleans.
