Choral Society Releases ‘Hallelujah! Santa Barbara’ Video

The recent appearance of a phalanx of tuxedo-attired men and women in long black dresses on the shoreline at Butterfly Beach was no mirage. Nor was it an escaped wedding party from the Biltmore.

Nearly 50 members of the Santa Barbara Choral Society had assembled — some barefoot — in their formal concert attire, to be filmed for a video being produced by TVSB in partnership with the Choral Society.

Just in time for the holidays, “Hallelujah! Santa Barbara” is a musical ode to our fair city that features various configurations of the 100-member choral group at iconic locations throughout Santa Barbara. The singers “flash” signs that spell out the words to the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah in time to pre-recorded music.

The Choral Society can be heard live at San Roque Catholic Church on Dec. 15-16 in a concert that includes major portions of Handel’s Messiah along with traditional holiday music.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
