Special guests and special features highlight this year’s shows
DALLAS, TX – Wednesday, December 9, 2015 – The renowned Turtle Creek Chorale, Emmy-Award winning all-men’s chorus from Dallas, presents it much anticipated series of holiday concerts December 17 through December 20 at the Dallas City Performance Hall in the downtown Dallas Arts District. The theme of this year’s concert series is HOME.
Joining the Chorale as special guest artist will be Dallas’ award-winning actress, singer and down-to-earth diva, Denise Lee. Performing during both acts of each night’s show, Denise is thrilled about being able to “play with the Turtles. I am so excited to have the honor of singing with the world renowned Turtle Creek Chorale for the holiday concert. Lots of fun, beautiful music in store to get you ready for the holiday season!!!”, she says.
Also featured will be African drum and dance ensemble Bandan Koro. An unlikely match for a holiday concert, Bandan Koro’s appearance will be quite an experience, blending music that has become something of Chorale tradition with a unique twist on the holiday season.
Those two guest performers are just a sampling of the excitement that will be in the hall for the Chorale’s holiday feature shows. Additional musical and dance surprises will delight the audiences. The Chorale’s incredibly moving and beautiful holiday traditions will also be continued.
Through the magnificent generosity of the Greg Grosh Charitable Trust, the Turtle Creek Chorale in this year’s holiday concerts will be accompanied by a full orchestra plus specialty musicians.
“During the holidays, sometimes the only place you want to be is home. It’s where you find acceptance and joy. Or maybe it drives you mad; we’ll look at that, too,” says Sean Baugh, TCC’s Artistic Director. “But in the end, there’s no place like home for the holidays.”
Guests at HOME will also have a chance to win a free Bahamas cruise via Port Canaveral, Florida, on Royal Caribbean with airfare and airport transfers included. Entrants don’t have to be present to win, but they must be present to be able to get a ticket for the drawing!
HOME will be presented at the Dallas City Performance Hall in the downtown Dallas Arts District on December 17, 18 and 19 at 7:30 each evening. A Sunday matinee on December 20 at 2:30 PM will close the series. On Saturday afternoon, December 19, a special abbreviated children’s matinee performance will be offered on a “pay what you can” basis. Tickets for all the other performances range from $28-$65. All tickets, including reservation tickets for the Saturday family matinee, are available at TurtleCreekChorale.com or by phone at 214.526.3214.
