VocalEssence Christmas Concerts

Most years, VocalEssence offers a Family-Friendly Holiday concert, such as Star of Wonder.

Tis the season for holiday bells, baby bottles, and happy smiles, as VocalEssence entertains with a Christmas concert for the whole family included 45 minutes of delightful carols and dancing with the VocalEssence Choir. No manners needed! The best part of the show is that its spirit depends on plenty of help from the audience! The more excited the kids are, the better the show becomes.


“Choral music is a Christmas tradition, and it’s truly heartwarming to see the amazement on so many small faces as they watch a choir sing as one. We look forward to it all year.”

–Philip Brunelle, founder and artistic director of VocalEssence

This choral experience has been held at various venues, including a popular 2018 concert at the MIA, where families could add a relaxing walk through the museum afterwards or just chill with a coffee while the kids played with blocks. Individual tickets for Christmas concerts are traditionally $15 for adults, FREE for children ages 0-17.
