Northern Lights

Join The Thirteen this Christmas and be transported to the exposed landscapes of the far north through works by Scandinavian, Baltic, and Northern composers. Including many of your holiday favorites and The Thirteen’s own arrangement of “Silent Night,” this candlelit concert can’t be missed!

The Thirteen draws its artists from among the finest ensembles in the world, including Chanticleer, Seraphic Fire, Apollo’s Fire, Conspirare, I Fagiolini, Opera Philadelphia, Boston Early Music Festival and Trinity Wall Street. The choir’s peerless singers are best described by National Public Radio commentator M.D. Ridge: “to talk about the remarkable abilities and sound of the individual singers would… be like trying to say which whitecaps on the ocean reflect the sun most beautifully, or which leaves on a tree dance most gracefully with the wind… I stand in awe.”
