Boston, MA—Last year’s Gracias Christmas Cantata Tour drew 13,000 people across 9 cities in America together to experience the happiness of the gift of Jesus Christ’s birth. This year’s Tour has expanded to 15 cities in the United States and Canada. On September 27th, Gracias Choir held its first 2013 Cantata performance in Boston, MA.
A city rich with history and academics, a town that represents the first days of American colonization, a place that is home to some of the best universities in the world like Harvard and MIT, and streets filled with abounding wisdom and innovation. But another reality is that Boston is ripe with spiritual decay.
This was the first time Gracias Christmas Cantata has come to Boston. The 1800-seat Chevalier Theater venue boasts a strong and rich cultural tradition. Even 2 hours before opening the house, many Bostonians had already lined the streets, waiting to redeem their tickets and listen to Gracias Choir. By the end of Act 1, 1000 people had taken their seats.
