NWCS presents our popular annual holiday concert, opening with Ottorino Respighi’s beautiful, rarely heard Christmas cantata, Lauda per la Natività del Signore (“Laud to the Nativity”)—a hymn of praise to the birth of Jesus, as told from the point of view of the shepherds, the angels and Mary. With stellar soloists and instrumentalists from the Chicago area, our multi-faceted program also features a joyous variety of anthems, carols and popular songs for Christmas.
