Carols of The Season
While neighborhood carolers do their best to spread yuletide cheer, most door-to-door crooners can't carry tunes as splendidly as the Tampa Oratorio Singers. In what has become a treasured annual tradition, the oratorio talents return to tickle the ghosts of Christmases past and present with their holiday showcase, Carols of the Season. With a lavish display of fine-tuned serenading, the choir transforms yuletide classic into soul-stirring symphonies, featuring special guests such as a brass quintet and an accompanying pianist.
Tampa Oratorio Singers
It was 1967 when the Tampa Oratorio Singers embarked on their mission: to not only bring the works of great choral masters to Tampa Bay audiences, but to enlist local volunteers to sing them. With the help of former US Air Force Band director Robert Scott, the 60-strong choir knocked it out of the park in its 1969 debut performance of Handel's "Messiah," and, like a dark wizard who feeds on applause, has only grown stronger since. With up to four shows annually, the singers display an impressive range and a wildly varying repertoire that touches on classical pieces, Broadway numbers, and opera, and even revisits the "Messiah" every year. Musical Director Nancy Callahan, former Dean of the American Guild of Organists and current Director of Music at Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, has used her clout and experience to expand upon the Singers reputation as a cultural jewel of Tampa.
