The 90-member Oratorio Society chorus, under the direction of L. Thomas Vining, will be joined by a brass ensemble, percussionists, and the handbell choir of First Presbyterian Church (David Norfrey, director) in a program to delight all ages. The performance will feature American composer Daniel Pinkham’s critically acclaimed Christmas Cantata, scored for chorus and double brass choir. The chorus will also perform beloved carols arranged by the Canadian Brass, including a delightfully witty version of The Twelve Days of Christmas featuring readily recognizable brass works throughout the ages. The program will include a variety of traditional seasonal music, ranging from the delicately crafted Lo, How a Rose, to the rousing Nigerian carol, Betelehemu.
