    The Des Moines Choral Society, conductor Dr. James Rodde & accompanist Elaine Wedeking will perform their annual “Christmas with the Choral Society” Saturday, December 9, at 7:30 PM. St. Ambrose Cathedral provides the perfect setting for some of the season’s most joyous music. Come experience an exciting season of original and classic compositions that stir the soul and inspire the mind with moving performances.
    A well-loved Des Moines holiday tradition, this concert will include an inspiring program of great works and seasonal favorites, all in celebration of the Christmas spirit. Together with chamber orchestra, piano, and soloists, the Des Moines Choral Society will fill the cathedral with the joy of the season! Composer in Residence Elaine Hagenberg, a well-published composer and member of the Choral Society, has arranged the accompaniments for the evening’s sing-along carols. Although these traditional carols will be well known to you, we’ll all experience premiere performances of these new arrangements.
