Shenandoah Valley Children's Choir ChristmasConcert--Christmas in Times and Places
Saturday, December 1 @ 7pm & Sunday, December 2 @ 4pm--Lehman Auditorium
Join SVCC's Concert, Treble and Preparatory Choirs under the artistic direction of
Janet Hostetter with the assistance of Joy Anderson, for a diverse selection of Christmas
songs and more. Musical offerings range in time from a Medieval antiphon by Hildegard
of Bingen, (1098-1179) to contemporary favorites such as "Welcome Christmas" from
the beloved How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Choristers will also share songs from far away places including Nigeria ("Betelehmu"),
the Czech Republic ("Hoj, Hura Hoj" translation: O Mountain O), and Australia (a new
composition, "The Ether of Infinity.”) A contemporary setting of the hymn, "Brightest
and Best," a gospel arrangement of "Go Tell it on the Mountain" and selections accompanied
by string quartet: "Cradle Hymn," "Psalm 23" and "Glow" will round out the program.
Audience members will be invited to participate in the singing of traditional carols
accompanied by organ throughout the concert. Online, box office and phone sales begin October 22.
