Our 42nd Season
We all understand the sensation of walking during a night’s snowfall - the crunch of your boots in the snowdrifts. Nature seems to be holding its breath and you can hear the crisp snowflakes settling to the ground. Overhead, the milky white of clouds reveal patches of dark winter sky and the crystal glitter of stars.
Joined by violinist Carla Kountoupes, along with Ensemble pianist Bill Epstein, our winter concerts feature a wide variety of familiar carols from Austria, Germany, France, and Wales (like Still, Still, Still, In Dulci Jubilo; Bring A Torch, Jeanette, Isabella; and Deck the Hall). You will also discover your new winter favorites like Christmas Snowflakes, Winter Awakening, Miles to Go Before I Sleep, and a toe-tapping Hodie Christus Natus Est.
The highlight of the concerts is the world premiere of A Christmas Telling of St. Bride of the Isles, this year’s lovely commission by award-winning music director, piano teacher, accompanist and composer Sarah Jaysmith. The text is by Raymond Raney who was asked to write a poem based on the 1913 painting St. Bride by John Duncan.
Come explore the stillness of December with us.
