Pacific Chorale “Tis The Season!” performed at the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, California on December 19, 2022.

Ever held a secret dream to conduct Pacific Chorale? Here is your chance to bring your dream to life! For one night only, you can be handed your own maestro’s baton, step up on the conductor’s podium, center stage at the Concert Hall and lead the magnificent voices of Pacific Chorale for a carol at our annual Tis the Season concert! Invite your loved ones (up to four) to join you for the experience of a lifetime as they watch from premium seats. Relax in your own private dressing room on the day of the concert. Afterward, you and your guests will share a backstage champagne toast with your guests and the Artistic Director. No experience necessary, you will receive a private conducting lesson with Artistic Director, Rob Istad. Take home the baton as a memento of your conducting debut! There are two conducting opportunities available: Sunday, December 17, 2023 and Monday, December 18, 2023.
