Blue Ridge Singers Concert, “The Joy of Waiting”

December 4, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Blue Ridge Singers brings holiday programming to your neighborhood for Advent & Christmas entitled, “The Joy of Waiting” conducted by artistic director, Dr. Jeffrey M. Alban. Dr. Alban writes, “The choral repertoire for the Advent season is often overlooked because the season is so short.  As Advent texts mostly point to the aspect of waiting; we experience joy as we know what is to come with the arrival of Christmas. The music to be sung will span several centuries: Gregorian chant, a dramatic English Renaissance verse anthem, a Baroque chorus from “The Messiah”, a 19th century French-Romantic work by César Franck (whose 200th birthday we will celebrate on December 10), a setting of the “Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis” from the early twentieth century, along with several contemporary settings of traditional carols, including a Barbershop-style setting of Frosty the Snowman and a Calypso Jingle Bells! As with every Blue Ridge Singers concert, there will be something for everyone. We invite you to join us as we prepare for the arrival of Christmas!”
