Holiday Concert - Come Wassail Away
This December’s holiday concert promises to be incredible, with a line-up that is sure to get you in the spirit. On Friday, December 13th and Saturday, December 14th at 8 PM in Hochstein Performance Hall, you will be treated to a holiday concert with a twist.
This year’s theme, Come Wassail Away, is loosely based on the idea of the Renaissance Madrigal Feaste, which intertwines a comedic light-hearted play with music and dance.
For this concert, we are welcoming Wayne Alan Dunbar to the fold as facilitator and director of this play. We know that Wayne will bring his own special flair to the project, which will be co-written and star our own chorus members. Our musical fare will also have flair, as we sing such timeless classics as "Auld Lang Syne", "Masters in This Hall", "Silent Night", and "Wassail Song", as well as newer classics like "All I Want for Christmas is You" and "Believe" (from The Polar Express).
We’ll be celebrating gay composer Benjamin Britten’s centenary by including selections from his Ceremony of Carols. We’re also thrilled to be including "Chanukah Suite" by Jason Robert Brown, who has written contemporary Broadway and off-Broadway shows such as Songs For A New World, Parade, and The Last Five Years. We will have our third annual toy drive at the concert, benefiting needy area children, so bring an unwrapped toy to the concert!
This event will be interpreted for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
