Celebration Chorale Cantata

The Celebration Chorale announces its upcoming annual Christmas cantata, “Christmas Dreams,” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3. The production will be held in the new sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church, located at 2501 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb. 

This cantata tells the Christmas story with fresh perspective. Throughout time, God has touched and motivated hearts through dreams and visions. Christmas Dreams visits these moments in scripture and connects the experiences of ancient times with our modern journey of faith.  The chorale welcomes the return of the Celebration Chorale Orchestra and is excited to add a small drama team to the production.  The Celebration Chorale and Orchestra are under the direction of Christine Monteiro.

Although the Celebration Chorale practices and performs at FUMC in DeKalb, the musicians come from all over the area and include professionals and amateurs, longtime chorale members and those who are new to the group. The chorale has singers representing over nine different church denominations and 10 local communities.

There is no charge for the performances at the church, but a free-will offering will be taken. Refreshments will be served after each performance. The church is a disability accessible facility with plenty of parking in front of the church.
