      The Santa Cruz Chorale, under the direction Artistic Director Christian
      Grube, kicks off its 27th season with:

      Christmas with the Chorale

      2401 E. Lake Avenue (Highway 152) in Watsonville

      Saturday, December 19 at 8:00p.m.
      and Sunday, December 20 at 4:00 p.m.
      at Holy Cross Church, 170 High Street in Santa Cruz

      The Chorale will be joined by Santa Cruz's legendary brass ensemble The
      Antiquarian Funks.

      Tickets are available at the door, by calling 831-427-8023, or at the

      admission, $18 for seniors, and $5 for students with valid ID.

      Christian Grube is emeritus professor of choral conducting at the Berlin
      University of Arts. His choirs are known for their exquisite sound,
      impeccable intonation, broad range of dynamic expression and ability to
      interpret the most diverse styles. (You can learn more about Director
      Grube at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Grube
      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Grube> .)

      The Antiquarian Funks is a musical group specializing in authentic
      musical performances of rarely heard works from the Renaissance and
      Early Baroque periods. The Funks were founded in 1971 by UC Santa Cruz
      astronomer emeritus and "Head Funk" William G. Mathews and have
      been performing ever since in a wide variety of combinations and venues.
      The Funks perform with reproductions of original antique instruments.

      In keeping with its popular Christmas concerts of the last several
      years, the Chorale offers a program of music from the fourteenth century
      to the present. The Chorale and The Funks will perform works from
      Praetorious and Palestrina to Vaughan Williams and David Willcocks,
      presenting different settings of beloved tunes (European and American)
      and of traditional texts and well-known carols.

      The Santa Cruz Chorale, a non-profit organization founded in 1983,
      performs a wide-ranging repertory including works from the 16th century
      through music of our time. The Chorale is a community based volunteer
      adult chorus.
