What’s New This Year
For the past 16 years, thousands of concert goers have made a Good Noise Christmas concert their annual holiday tradition. The singing, the music, the dancing in the aisles – all have been a part of these “must-see” concerts, with the choir and audience members collectively sharing in a joyful and compelling experience that captured the best of the spirit of the season.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have brought in-person rehearsals and concerts to a halt, but Artistic & Executive Director, Gail Suderman, has created a unique and special project for the Christmas season that will bring to life the Christmas gospel and popular songs that are so beloved by our audiences.
This Christmas, celebrate the season by joining with the choir from the comfort of your own home as you watch a uniquely designed concert video that brings together the musicians and soloists along with the music and voices of Good Noise through creative technology. You will be brought back into the beauty of Christ Church Cathedral where the Good Noise Gospel Band, our guest artist Crystal Hicks and two of the choir’s soloists, Timothy Fuller and Syllona Kanu, were filmed and recorded live. The choir has done what so many choirs have while gathering together is restricted – created a virtual choir. Through the brilliance of creative editing, the live filming will be woven together with the virtual choir, and this video concert experience will keep us all connected as we continue to share the best of the spirit of the season.
When you purchase your tickets for “Good Tidings Classic!”, please know that you will be not only helping to keep the choir alive during this very challenging time, but providing an opportunity for us to continue to creatively share our voices and music with you, our beloved audiences.
