The St. Louis Chamber Chorus presents Christmas Down Under on Sunday, December 22, at 3 pm. "Celebrating the season at the hottest time of the year changes one's perspective, as shown by the “bush carols” of William James. Even familiar carols find new harmonies by Australian and New Zealand composers from Malcolm Williamson & Peter Sculthorpe, to Owen Elsley & Clare Maclean. Fresh arrangements of holiday favorites will resound in one of St. Louis' most original buildings." The concert takes place at the St. Louis Abbey Church, 500 S. Mason Road in Creve Coeur.
