    Dear Santa Kalmar,
    In the next three seasons, please include more large CHORAL works. I would suggest the Verdi Requiem, Mass by Bernstein, and Mahler 8th Symphony. I am sure you would have sell-out crouds for all 3 concerts.

    VERY cool program idea, CB!
    I got your back.
    And also, in case Santa reads this, I’d like to make a shout out to my favorite piece of all time (includes chorus!): Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky!!!!!!!
