Nothing says Christmas like Christmas music, especially those soul stirring choral numbers that bring a certain reverence back to an over-commercialized holiday. The 138-singer strong San Jose Symphonic Choir is sure to stun with its renditions of Gloria, set by 20th century French composer Francis Poulenc, and Christmas Cantata set by 20th century American composer Daniel Pinkham. The San Jose Symphonic Choir, supported in part by a cultural affairs grant from the city of San Jose, has been presenting choral masterworks and contemporary pieces since 1924 and is known for holding performances that bring attention to community concerns, like homelessness.
3pm. First United Methodist Church of Pacific Grove, 915 Sunset Dr., Pacific Grove. $15. 408-995-3318, or e-mail email@example.com. sanjosesymphonicchoir.org.
