World-Class Music, Art & An Opportunity to Give

This year, Salt Lake City Choral Artists is adding a unique new component to its traditional Christmas holiday concerts in St. Ambrose Cathedral. A collection of limited-edition fine-art works by world-renowned artists will be displayed and offered for sale at special holiday prices to patrons attending the event. Proceeds will directly benefit the Salt Lake Choral Artists and are tax deductible. The collection features the artwork of renowned artists Anne J. Bradham and Mathieu Mategot. Generous donations from two philanthropic Salt Lake City families are making this year's special event possible. The Lawrence Jeppson Family has made these selections available from its fine arts collection. Bryson and Jan Garbett, who have been instrumental in providing a home for SLCA and other community groups to rehearse and perform in, will provide a matching donation for each piece that is sold. Bryson and Jan Garbett have also donated two original artworks by Leconte Stewart which will be available to purchase at the concerts. “The holiday season is a time when we can stop and appreciate the beauty and music rising up all around us, “says Jan Garbett. “I am pleased that we have found a way to help Salt Lake City Choral Artists extend a joyful noise in partnership with local artists. I encourage all to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity!”

Luminous Night - Winter Solstice Celebration

THE LIGHT RETURNS Give yourself the gift of a gorgeous, quiet night of nurturing the Light within. During this time of the longest night when we naturally want to go in, but often end up being even more active because of the holidays, this is a chance to enjoy a tranquil, quiet evening to slow down and savor peaceful, inner space in loving community. Plus, humans have celebrated solstices and equinoxes with dancing, feasting and community rituals for thousands of years. It’s in our blood! GIFTS OF THE SEASON Breathe fresh evergreens and be blessed with the ancient essences of frankincense and myrrh. With nourishing music and meditative movement (optional), journey into the dark and silence of yourself to connect with your inner light. Put this solar year to bed, light a candle with your own intention, create your own ritual or simply bless yourself with the gift of stillness. Simple facilitation will be offered in this sacred space to support you in observing the season in your own ways. Our annual Midwinter celebration offers a respite from the hectic holiday season and will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and connected. For many years we’ve sold out, so be sure to claim your space! All proceeds go to the Warm Springs Alliance, 501(c)3 nonprofit
