December 14, 2019
New to 2019, the whole family was invited to our 3pm performance of Seek Out Light on Saturday, December 14th. This shorter (45 minute), kid-friendly holiday program was packed with seasonal choral favorites like Morten Lauridsen’s “Sure on this Shining Night,” William Averitt’s “Masters in this Hall,” and Christopher Hoh’s “Good People All, This Christmastime” as well as lots of familiar carols like “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas,” “O Christmas Tree,” and “Deck the Hall.” Families had several opportunities to sing along with the Alexandria Choral Society, and one lucky child had an opportunity to take the podium and conduct! Two harps joined us as we presented Will Todd’s Among Angels, a choral work designed to mimic the sound of angels in flight.
Our longer evening program, starting at 7:30pm, expanded upon our previous matinee performance, adding in works by composers like Elizabeth Poston (Jesus Christ the Apple Tree), Susan Labarr (Huron Carol), Kathleen Allan (The Frost), and Herbert Howells (Magnificat 'Collegium Regale).
