Transeamus (let us cross over) celebrates the PWC's next chapter after its milestone 50th anniversary this past season. To launch this new era, the PWC performs one of the great choral landmarks of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols.
Then come travel with us to the Southern Hemisphere to explore rhythmic drive and rich double-choir textures in newer works from Australia and New Zealand. We send you home with beloved carols (including an Australian one!) to welcome a new holiday season.
