Indianapolis Children’s Choir will celebrate the festive season with holiday concerts

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Children’s Choir (ICC) will present holiday concerts to celebrate the festive season this December.

These four concerts give the Indianapolis community the chance to experience the tradition of choral music performed by singers as young as kindergarten, and as old as alumni of the ICC from its founding year. Each concert will be presented at the architecturally stunning Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, with a special candlelight performance included in the concert series, as well as options to live stream specific performances.

There are four opportunities to experience the joy of the season at an ICC Gloria concert:

  • Friday, December 16, 2022, at 7 p.m. – Angels Sing: Gloria
  • Saturday, December 17, 2022, at 3 p.m. – Celebrate the Season: Gloria
  • Saturday, December 17, 2022, at 7 p.m. – Angels Sing: Gloria (candlelight performance)
  • Sunday, December 18, 2022, at 4 p.m. – Sounds of the Season: Gloria

“Holiday concerts presented by ICC singers have been a staple in the Indianapolis community for so many years, and this year will be no exception,” shares Joshua Pedde, Artistic Director of the ICC. “This year’s theme of Gloria brings the magic of the season to life as we come together to continue this joyful tradition of children’s voices presenting timeless holiday songs.”

Performing choirs include singers from the Neighborhood Choir Academy, the ICC’s outreach program that introduces the expert choral music experience of the ICC into Indianapolis neighborhood schools. Additional performing choirs include the ICC’s Foundations Choir for kindergarteners, Preparatory Choir, Jubilate Choir, Beginning Level Choirs (Octavo, Boone County, Carmel, Fishers, Hendricks County, and Johnson County), Chamber Choir, Lyric Choir, Kantorei Choir, Indy Voice 1 and 2 Choirs, and Master Chorale. Current singers will also be joined by ICC alumni for Sunday’s concert as they perform a selection of pieces – a true testament to the ICC’s lasting impact on singers and the community.

The holiday concerts are typically the most popular of the season for the ICC, so be sure to secure your tickets in advance. Tickets are $14 each and can be purchased online in advance at Ages 5 and under can attend for free but require a ticket.

If the concerts do not sell out in advance, additional tickets will be available for purchase at the door prior to the performance.

Virtual attendance options are also available for the December 16 performance at 7 p.m., the December 17 performance at 3 p.m., and the December 18 performance at 4 p.m. To purchase a live stream with a download, or live stream or download only, visit
