Christmas concerts

Wrapping up the Christmas season are the final performances of the Banco Popular’s traditional showing of the Christmas story “El Milagro de la Navidad” on Thursday, 25 December and Sunday, 28 December in the parking area of its John F. Kennedy Avenue headquarter building at 7:30pm. This year, Banco de Progreso presents its own Villa Navidad, with performances starting at 5:30 pm also taking place on Sundays throughout December, with the final performance set for Sunday, 28 December.
Do not miss the Dominican Association of Nativity Scene Creators’ 2003 collection of nativity tableaux, on display this year at the Convento de los Dominicos in the Colonial City.
And the most classic event of all, the annual Santo Domingo Cathedral Christmas Day concert, performed by the choir of the Cathedral, beckons those who embrace the Christmas spirit. Those interested should arrive by 7pm in order to secure a seat. This year, the group will present the world premiere of “Alegria de Navidad”, composed by Maestro Rafael Solano, “The Hour has Come” by Canadian Srul Irving Glick, and the “Cantata 140” by Johann Sebastian Bach, in addition to many other favourite Christmas carols.
