Sunday, December 15, 7:30 p.m. at Augustana
Join Augustana’s Chancel Choir, Augustana Ringers, Cantabile, AVE and Stratus Chamber Orchestra for the ever popular annual Christmas Concert, Gloria!
Delight in well-known favorites including unique settings of “Away in a Manger” and “Lo, How A Rose” for choir and soprano saxophone, along with the centerpiece of the concert, “Gloria,” a larger work by John Michael Trotta. This year, Augustana Ringers will be ringing two contrasting pieces—an exuberant arrangement of “African Noel,” featuring handbells and soprano soloist, and another lovely setting of the Andalucian carol, “Campana Sombre Campana” (“Bells Over Bethlehem”), for handbells and percussion.
The usual carol-sing with the audience will be integrated into this enchanting evening, featuring “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” by New York composer Julian Wachner, and “Festival First Noel” by one of the choir’s favorite composers, Dan Forrest.
The concert is free, but tickets are required. Obtain them in advance at www.augustanaarts.org or at the door the night of the concert.
