Tickets now on sale for Indy’s annual Festival of Carols

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir’s annual Christmas performance, Festival of Carols, moves to two of the city’s most impressive performance venues this December.

The 150-voice choir will welcome the holiday season in the rich, oak-paneled ballroom at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis at 7 p.m. Dec. 9, and the new acoustically rich Palladium at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel at 8 p.m. Dec. 22.

Tickets range from $20 to $38 and may be purchased at www.indychoir.org. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door.

“We’re pulling out all the stops this Christmas,” artistic director Eric Stark said. “Not only do the performances feature 150 singers from the Symphonic Choir, but we’re also joined by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Circle City Ringers handbell choir, and the Butler University men’s a cappella group ‘Out of the Dawg House.’ It will be a performance to remember.”

Festival of Carols performances feature arrangements of “Joy to the World, “Away in a Manger” and the “Hallelujah” chorus, in addition to other pieces as performed by 150 members of the Symphonic Choir. As part of the Choir’s educational programming, the Greenfield Central High School Madrigal Singers will perform side-by-side with the Symphonic Choir singers on three pieces at both performances.

Acknowledging the institution’s innovative patron experience initiative, Executive Director Michael Pettry adds: “Christmas carols are timeless. The Symphonic Choir’s performances provide the chance to create new holiday memories, like few other arts organizations can deliver. From carolers in the lobbies with cocoa and cookies, to lighter moments and dramatic climaxes throughout the show, I’d wager the Symphonic Choir’s holiday performances are among the best in the entire state.”
