The Sounds of Christmas...just the words bring back special memories....

The Sounds of Christmas...just the words bring back special memories. Nothing says the holiday season like the nostalgic music from the Hilton Head Choral Society Christmas concert, "I'll be Home for Christmas." Our musical sleigh is filled with favorites galore from traditional carols, some sung in surprising ways, to generational family favorites and iconic Christmas songs of Bing Crosby - "White Christmas", "Snow", and "The Little Drummer Boy". Add a waltz or two and a spectacular setting of "Jingle Bells" and you're guaranteed to leave the concert filled with the spirit of the holidays. Our Christmas favorites will put you in the holiday mood! The Hilton Head Choral Society has been bringing the beauty of choral music to the Island for 40 years. An orchestra of professional musicians and soloists are included in the concert, and may total more than 200 instrumentalists and singers! All concerts take place at First Presbyterian Church, 540 William Hilton Parkway on Hilton Head Island. Ticket prices range from $10 - $40.

The Sanctuary was brimming with decorations and seating was full to capacity. Throughout the performance, I kept feeling a sense of joy and wonder. Under the superb direction of their conductor, Tim Reynolds, the Hilton Head Choral Society very aptly performed a variety of familiar Christmas songs with a heartfelt and warm welcome to a community that has just survived...

Wonderful Christmas Concert. We always enjoy the mix of the orchestra and the Choral Society. Tim Reynolds does a terrific job of leading both. We especially like how Tim inserts entertaining stories and background information about the songs that are performed. Great way to get in the Christmas spirit!

We pre-purchased tickets online to attend the 'Sounds of the season' concert performed by the HHCS, we had read some reviews and decided to give it a try. From the moment of our very early arrival there was a very 'flat' atmosphere. We were unprofessionally met by a woman at the entrance whom we showed our tickets to who couldn't... More

We went to the Society's Spring concert (Music From a Small Island) last week. It was wonderful. Great selection of music from Great Britain, very good orchestra and lovely singing from over 100 voices. Highly recommended.

The Choral Society is an Island Treasure. The Christmas program this year was particularly good. The selection and execution was wonderful. The Hilton Head Choral Society is a must see.

The Choral Society's Christmas concert played to a full and enthusiastic house. 100+ Chorus and orchestra filled the hall with Christmas delights from Merrie Olde England. The highlight of the evening was "A Musicalogical Journey through the 12 Days of Christmas". The traditional 12 Days set to music of various periods from the Medieval Days to John Phillips Sousa's "Stars... More

Wonderful for a choir of volunteer singers to exist now into its 40th season! The 2015 opener was held in the on island Presbyterian church. We sat in the section perpendicular to the stage. If you happen to sit there too, be aware that the sound from the choir does not project into this area. We enjoyed watching the percussionists... More
