ABS’s instantly sold-out 2012 Baroque Christmas concert at St. Stephen’s Church was such a tremendous success that another special program has been added to the schedule in the new season. On December 14, “An ABS Christmas”—presented in the beautiful, candlelit space where ABS was founded in 1989—will feature holiday-themed works along with Bach’s jubilant Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen featuring trumpet virtuoso John Thiessen and soprano Shawnette Sulker, praised by Opera News for the "natural warmth and charm" of her singing, and noted for “…displaying a bright, superbly controlled soprano with perfectly placed coloratura.”
