December 1, 2003

The Dordt College Concert Choir, Kantorei, and Women's Chorus will present music for the Christmas season on Friday, Dec. 12, 7:30 p.m. in the B. J. Haan Auditorium.

The Kantorei will sing some of the beloved Alfred Burt carols, as well as a variety of "lighter" seasonal offerings, such as "Christmas Time is Here" (from the Charlie Brown Christmas television special) and an arrangement of "Deck the Halls" ... in 7/8 time.

The Concert Choir will sing through the nativity story, including Hammerschmidt’s “O Beloved Shepherds” featuring Liz McPherson, soprano. Works by Claude Goudimel, Jan Sandstrom, Healy Willan and Randall Thompson will be included in this segment of the performance.

The Women’s Chorus will present excerpts from the Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten.

There is no cost to attend the concert. A free-will offering will be received, with proceeds directed toward music scholarships at Dordt College.
