December 3, 2022
IU Auditorium - Bloomington, Indiana
The Singing Hoosiers and Chris Albanese, director
The holiday tradition continues with the jolliest family-friendly event of the season, Chimes of Christmas. The Grammy-nominated Singing Hoosiers return to the IU Auditorium stage for their annual concert, presenting a mix of well-known carols, contemporary hits, and classical choral arrangements. The performances will also feature special guests from various Jacobs School of Music ensembles: including the IU African American Choral Ensemble (Raymond Wise, director) and NOTUS (Dominick DiOrio, director).
Directed by Dr. Chris Albanese, The Singing Hoosiers are a Bloomington favorite with over 70 years of tradition in contemporary vocal performance. They have entertained audiences across the United States and in more than 25 countries spanning Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Caribbean. The ensemble has enjoyed collaborations with Duke Ellington, Bob Hope, Mel Tormé, Sandi Patty, Sylvia McNair, the Indianapolis Symphony, and the Cincinnati Pops under the direction of Erich Kunzel.
