Winter 2018 – The Waiting Sky: A Holiday Concert

We are very excited about our concert repertoire for our holiday concert on Saturday evening, December 15th, 7:00pm at Christ Church United Methodist in downtown Charleston, West Virginia.

The majority of this concert will be performed a cappella and includes choral works by some of our favorite 20th and 21st century composers, including Ralph Vaughan Williams, Franz Biebl, Ola Gjeilo, K. Lee Scott, and our dear friend, Kim Andre Arnesen, (If you remember, we gave the American premiere Kim’s “Requiem” in April of 2015.) The concert also includes some music by composers that are new to us. This includes Swedish composer, Fredrik Sixten, and Jan Corelis, Oliver Tarney and Marten Jansson.

Two of these pieces, works by K. Lee Scott and Ralph Vaughan Williams, will be accompanied by organ, brass and percussion. To see the complete list of our concert repertoire, please click on the ‘Concert Repertoire’ tab in the column to the left of your screen.

Christ Church has a wonderful acoustical environment, and this concert will showcase that acoustic when we will be singing from three different locations in the room during the concert.

We hope to see you on December 15th!
