Jonas Kaufmann: It's Christmas Classical and popular favorites with the Salzburg Chamber Soloists


Get out your best Christmas sweaters and cozy up to our favorite new holiday program: Jonas Kaufmann's It's Christmas, a selection of festive songs and arias by one of the world's most beloved tenors! Let Kaufmann warm your ears and your heart in this instant classic, aptly filmed at the Stille Nacht Kapelle (Silent Night Chapel), built on the site of the former St. Nicholas Church where "Silent Night" was performed for the very first time on Christmas Eve 1824. It's the ideal setting for this yuletide cornucopia, featuring traditional favorites in multiple languages—from "Alle Jahre wieder" and "Stille Nacht" to "Entre le boeuf et l'âne gris" and "Adeste fideles," all the way to modern-day romps like "Jingle Bells," "Let It Snow," "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas," and plenty more, joined by a cast of world-renowned groups including the Salzburg Chamber Soloists and St. Florian Boys' Choir!
