For the third year in a row, our music program has received a generous grant from the Morrison Foundation to present our traditional Christmas concert featuring all K – 6 students along with the upper school choirs, orchestra and special groups at their famed venue, the Velma V. Morrison Performing Arts Center.
The concert is known for its traditional sounds of Christmas from the middle ages through the early 20th century. Brass, strings, children and youth voices create a beautiful evening of Christmas joy. This year’s theme is ‘The Joy of Christmas’ reflecting the spirit of a season celebrating our Savior’s birth.
Special groups performing include Cantavi (4th – 6th honors choir), Gaudeo (9th – 12th honors choir), a violin soloist and guest professional brass septet and string quartet. A full orchestra and all K – 6 students will also perform.
The concert will open with J. S. Bach’s “Hallelujah” from Cantata 143 for all singers, full orchestra, Glory Brass, our guest professional brass ensemble, and the Syringa String Quartet, our guest professional string quartet. The second piece, also featuring all combined musical resources, will be “Christmas Lullaby,” a lovely piece by renowned British composer John Rutter. Channing Mitson (’17) will perform a solo violin feature, Gaudeo will present “Carol of the Bells” and we will conclude with the massed ensemble performing “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah.
Come celebrate the birth of our Savior on Wednesday, December 20 beginning at 7:00 pm. Invite family, neighbors, and friends to come enjoy this beautiful and stirring musical presentation featuring centuries of song performed by our students.
