CLICK HERE for a dropbox link to choir music and MP3s to aid your rehearsal. You may need to create a dropbox account if you are unable to see the files.
A couple of notes about these files:
1. The MP3s are unedited, live recordings, and thus not intended (or authorized) for mass distribution. They are intended to help in your rehearsals only.
2. The set list is not complete and subject to change.
*Please print your music from the dropbox site and place it in a black binder.* Each member is responsible for their own music.
As a member of the choir, you may obtain discounted tickets for friends and family by entering the exclusive promo code GETTY30 on the Kimmel Center website. (Choir members do not need a separate ticket. Your registration through Ticket Leap is all you need.) THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT!
As if Keith and Kristyn Getty and their virtuoso band weren't enough, special guests will include Concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, David Kim as well as prominent pastor and theologian Alistair Begg. This will be an unforgettable evening of praise at the height of the Christmas season!
