The University’s Concert Choir, Chamber Choir and University Chorus, all under the direction of Sacramento State professor Donald Kendrick, have just returned from a successful European concert tour in partnership with the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra. The groups performed for audiences of thousands in Vienna, Prague and Budapest, where a recording was made for an upcoming CD. The campus’ choral ambassadors are now set to wow local holiday audiences.

The choirs’ With Heart and Voice concert will feature works drawn from the European community, including music by Petr Eben of the Czech Republic, as well as American compositions. This season-opening show will be at 8 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Sacred Heart Church at 39th and J Streets in Sacramento.

This year will also mark the 20th presentation of the overwhelmingly successful Procession of Carols Sacramento State choirs concert. This annual holiday event featuring innovative and traditional carols, candlelit processions and an audience sing-along is a certain sellout year after year. In recognition of its popularity and in celebration of its 20th anniversary an additional matinee has been added. Performances begin at 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4 at Sacred Heart Church and continue at 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 5.

Advance purchase of tickets for choir performances is recommended. Tickets are $10 general and $5 for students and seniors. They are available from the CSUS Ticket office at (916) 278-4323 or More information is available from the Sacramento State music department at (916) 278-5155 or online at For media assistance call public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
