Every January since 1987 Coro has brought to the Bay Area an ever-fresh celebration in song of Día de los Reyes and the feast-days that surround it, stretching from La Noche Buena to Candelaria. As Coro’s most important concert cycle each year, this is a feast of feasts, of music new and old, from near and far, for reverie or for revelry, but always filling the heart and thrilling the soul.
