Granada Theatre Thursday, December 24, 2015 3 pm & 5 pm
Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara is presenting its annual FREE CHRISTMAS EVE Concert for the whole family, complete with childcare for children 3 and under. The music has been selected and beautifully arranged by recording artist Joseph Pfeifer & Band and will be full of the familiar Christmas songs that make the holidays so festive and memorable.
Joseph Pfeifer is a singer/songwriter from San Diego, California. During a youthful soul-searching trip abroad at the age of 19, Pfeifer found himself in Eastern Europe helping out an orphanage singing a few simple songs in Ukrainian. “I was out in the middle of nowhere, in some unknown city, singing a few songs with these totally abandoned children. And this one little orphan immediately befriended me. He didn’t have a father or a mother, but for a brief moment in time, I was able to be his friend. I’ll never forget his name: Andree. It impacted my life, dramatically. I knew playing music was what I was born to do and loving people was what I was called to do.”
Pfeifer returned home and began to write his own material and, after years of playing in churches, camps, coffee shops, and other various venues, his debut album “Good Company” was independently released in early 2010. He has received praise for creating honest lyrics and inspiring melodies that “consistently provoke one to search their heart and experience life as it should be… passionately, with hope, and covered in Grace.”
This year’s Christmas Eve Concert at the Granada Theatre is a perfect opportunity to hear Pfeifer perform the memorable Christmas songs that delight listeners of all ages. To complete the evening, Calvary Chapel’s Pastor David Guzik, will share an inspiring holiday message.
Benchmark Eatery makes a great stop for drinks and a meal before or after the concert. From a recent customer:
