The Chorale will present our annual holiday concert at the Newport Performing Arts Center The chorale will be singing the glorious Vivaldi "Gloria" along with a selection of shorter seasonal pieces including Sweelinck's "Hodie Christus Natus Est" and Rutter's "Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind." Those of you who enjoyed our "dancers" at the spring concert will be glad to see their appearance as part of "Kuimba" a South African song of celebration. We will welcome guest musicians to provide a small orchestra as our accompanists, the first time we've done this in several years. We're really looking forward to strings and oboe. And, as always, our small, women-only group, Women of Note, will step out from the chorus to perform several pieces. Those will include a Manhattan Transfer style version of "Snowfall" by Ruth and Claude Thornhill, the lovely, melodic "Something Told the Wild Geese" by Sherri Porterfield and a fun and intricate madrigal "Throw Open the Shutters."
Join us for a concert that celebrates all the wonderful moods of the holiday season from glorious to joyful to just plain fun.
There is a suggested donation of $10 for admittance.
