The First Nowell: A Celebration of Christmas

Good morning all, 

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends! We're thrilled to bring you another wonderful concert before the new year and we hope many of you will be able to attend.

Following last year's sold out performance, Manhattan Chorale returns to present a rare Christmas treat with The First Nowell: A Celebration of Christmas at Lincoln Center featuring the professional Manhattan Chorale and chamber orchestra on Monday, December 16, 2013 at 7:30pm. Don't miss this fantastic evening of Christmas favorites at renowned Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center!

This concert will include selections from Ralph Vaughan Williams' Hodie, J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio, selections from Charpentier's Messe de Minuit pour Noël, Quoniam tu solus santcus from Rutter's Gloria, and much more, with audience caroling and seasonal narration. Listen to Manhattan Chorale here

Tickets are only $5 each ($85 value) and you can book right through this Meetup event page. Make sure to reserve your spot early for this concert before seats sell out. Once you have booked your tickets, they will be available at the Alice Tully Hall box office under your name from 4pm on the day of the performance. Everyone from the Meetup group will be seated together.

This is going to be a fabulous concert with Manhattan Chorale and chamber orchestra! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Best,

Christine

    I am so glad to hear so many of you enjoyed the concert! It was such a wonderful evening! We just posted another Meetup event for 2/16 at world-renowned Carnegie Hall! Be sure to book early before seats sell out! We will also be meeting at The Russian Tea Room for pre-concert drinks this time. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    See you soon, and thank you for attending!

    Michelle thanks for the most magnificent concert!!! But...

    ...what happened??? I'm sorry that my guest and I were there at 6:45 by the ticket windows, then in the lobby and we never saw anything like a group. Also, I thought you arranged for the group to sit together, but there were empty sits on our row...

    Hi Michelle- Can you tell me what time bix office closes?

    December 16, 2013

    • Christine

      Hi Shirley - the box office closes at the start of the concert. Thanks!

      1 · December 16, 2013

    • Michelle

      Hi Shirley - just got word from Alice Tully, box office actually closes 30mins after the show begins and then they send any tickets to the gate so anyone coming in late can go to the ticket taker and get right in. Hope that helps!

  • Yuki

    Hi - I got a ticket but can't make it & would like to give it to my friend. Is there any way she can pick it up, though it's in my name?

    1 · December 15, 2013

    • Michelle

      Hi Yuki, please send me your friends name and we can ask box office to change the name on the ticket today.
      Thank you,

    December 4, 2013

    • Christine

      Hi Ellen, that is no problem at all. We will make sure you have an aisle seat.

  • Adela

    Hi again Michelle and Christine, is it possible to bring one more guest and have her sit with my other 2 guests and myself? I'm sorry I forgot all about her and she was angry with me. While I know you don't need more people since you reached 40 members! :o) I would like it so very much if you could accommodate this time please? I'll get her ticket as soon as I hear from you. Thanks so much! Adela
