The Arts Council is pleased to host its annual holiday choral concert on Saturday, December 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Big Sky Chapel. Doors open at 7 p.m. This concert is part of our Bravo! Big Sky program, and is supported in part by Arts Council's Schwer-Toepffer Memorial Fund.

For this year we present a collaboration between Roots in the Sky and Baroque Music Montana, featuring a
program that draws relationships between 21st century music and that of the German Baroque. Beginning with a set of Lutheran Advent cantatas and culminating with a contemporary cantata based on plays by the Greek philosopher Seneca, we welcome in the Holiday season in style and bring together two of Montana's most exciting performing arts organizations.

With performances described as “the best choral singing we’ve ever heard in Bozeman (or almost anywhere),” Roots in the Sky (formerly the Aoide Chamber Singers) has established itself as Montana’s premier chamber choir through its commitment to presenting thoughtfully programmed performances of historical and contemporary choral works that ask questions about the world in which we are living. Sought-after for collaborations, Roots in the Sky has appeared in performance with Grammy Award-winning choir The Crossing, Jitro Czech Children’s Choir, and many of the Gallatin Valley’s finest instrumentalists.

Baroque Music Montana performs works by celebrated composers of the Baroque, as well as many pieces rarely or not heard since the eighteenth century. BaMM’s musician roster rotates based on desired instrumentation for repertoire performed in intimate spaces similar to which the music was originally intended, and often on period instruments. Based in Bozeman, it provides a performance platform for both local artists and visiting professionals who have deeply invested in fruitful historical performance.
