Dartmouth Choral Society’s annual Christmas concert, Rejoicing, Then and Now, takes you on a seasonal journey through song and story.
Under the ever-watchful eye -- and ear! -- of director Malcolm Bradley, and along with accompanist Pamela Burton, the choir's voices blend with woodwinds, strings, and piano on traditional pieces like In Dulci Jubilo, as well as on some more modern choral arrangements, including a medley of Irving Berlin Christmas standards, and Rita MacNeil's, This Season Will Never Grow Old. Dartmouth Choral Society's own Elinor Benjamin, soprano and storyteller, narrates composer/arranger John Rutter’s Brother Heinrich’s Christmas.
We also feature some fantastic local musical talent of the instrumental kind in this year's concert. This season, we're thrilled to welcome guest musicians: Nina Woulff, oboe; Kristin Bieber Domm, bassoon; Hilary Brown, cello; and, Celeste Jankowski and Sean Sneddon, violin.
Speaking of local talent, we'll also be auditioning new members during our mid-concert carol sing, so be sure to warm up before you arrive!
From the old to the new, this season's music celebrates peace, winter (if such a thing is possible!), and the joy of Christmas and the holiday season - we hope to see you there!
Rejoicing, Then and Now, takes place Saturday, 10 December, 2016, at 7:30 PM, Grace United Church, 70 King St., Dartmouth.
Tickets are $15 per person, and are available from your favorite choir member, at the door, or online at facebook.com/dartmouthchoralsociety .
