Event description
St. Rose Church once again presents its acclaimed annual Christmas concert of treasured carols and masterworks for choir and orchestra

About this event

Required for Entry: Face Masks (all guests ages 2 and above) + Vaccination Proof/Negative Test Result and Matching Photo ID (all guests ages 18 and above)

We are thrilled to announce the return of our beloved Christmas Concert this year. Music director Trevor Kroeger will lead our acclaimed professional choir and chamber orchestra in a spectacular program of treasured carols and choral masterworks, including Gerald Finzi's stunning In Terra Pax featuring world-renowned baritone Morgan Smith and soprano Murrella Parton. This year, we honor Fr. Barry Windholtz with the world premiere of Ring Out, Ye Bells!, a work for chorus and orchestra by Dominick DiOrio, who composed the work in honor of Fr. Barry's 20-year anniversary as pastor of St. Rose.

St. Rose Church is proud to offer these one-of-a-kind, extraordinary performances for the community free of charge. Tickets are required and must be reserved in advance.

This is a family-friendly event, and we warmly welcome listeners of all ages. If your child will be seated on your lap, they do not need a ticket. In all other cases, tickets are required for children.

Please Note

Due to high demand, guests are limited to four tickets to one concert per family. Out of respect to all those who wish to attend this concert and to ensure every seat is filled, please confirm your availability prior to submitting your order and only reserve tickets that you are certain you will use.

If your plans do change, please return your tickets as soon as possible to ensure they are made available to others.

Support the Concert

Since 2015, the St. Rose Christmas Concert has become a beloved holiday tradition. We are proud to be a place where people from all walks of life can experience exceptional concerts of sacred classical music performed by a fully professional choir and orchestra free of charge. Led by music director Trevor Kroeger, the St. Rose Music Society continues to develop and expand the concert in response to tremendous demand from the community:

2015: The 1st Annual St. Rose Christmas Concert

  • 1 Concert
  • 8 Singers
  • 2 Instrumentalists
  • 150 Attendees
  • No Waitlist

2019: The 5th Annual St. Rose Christmas Concert

  • 2 Concerts
  • 26 Singers
  • 27 Instrumentalists
  • 934 Attendees
  • 273 People on the Waitlist

Private support is vital to the continuation of this beloved holiday tradition. Concerts of this caliber come with many costs and every dollar donated is used to cover:

  • Musician wages
  • Production technician fees
  • Music rental and license fees
  • Lighting, audio, and video equipment expenses and rental fees
  • Marketing and printing expenses
  • Operational expenses

If we received $25 for every attendee, we would be able to cover half of these costs. No amount is too small, and we appreciate each and every one of our donors. You can donate online securely by clicking here. If you would like to make a major gift, please contact Trevor Kroeger at If you cannot afford to give, no problem. Everyone is welcome here. We look forward to seeing you this season!
