Celebrate the music of Christmas in diverse and powerful ways in one amazing concert! On December 17th, at 7:30 p.m., the Community Renewal Chorus, along with the choirs of St. Alphonsus, will present “From London to Chicago: A Christmas Concert.”
Hear Benjamin Britten’s beloved Ceremony of Carols accompanied by harp, and Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax, accompanied by string orchestra, harp, and percussion. The Finzi work has been described as “a miniature masterpiece that unites the familiar events of the Christmas story into a compelling musical narrative that is at once personal and universal.”1
Of course, you will also delight in carol arrangements old and new, from Gospel spirituals to Fry’s Christmas in Chicago.
This is a must-see concert!
