As we process with candles and handbells, the gentle melodic ripples of Still, Still, Still will greet you, followed by the stirring opening chorus from J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, the crystalline harmonies of Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols and the evocative moods of Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax. Traditional carols by diverse composers will envelop you, including Dan Forrest’s arrangement of Silent Night from 2019 which will certainly elevate your dreams for the future!

In 2020, the world was all set to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday. By my calculation, he will still be 250 years old in 2021! We hope that our March 2020 plans can be revived for March 2021 with a spotlight on the genius of Beethoven. Hear “highlights” of Beethoven’s choral, operatic and instrumental masterpieces and experience the power of a composer who changed the landscape of classical music!

Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, op 45 is one of the most beautiful choral works, not only of the nineteenth century, but of all time. Completed in 1868 as a tribute to his mother and to his great friend, Robert Schumann, the “German Requiem” is a masterpiece which singers and audience return to time and time again. The non-liturgical “German Requiem” addresses the living, rather than the dead, and poignantly communicates the essence of universal human experience. Scholars and performers agree that Ein deutsches Requiem provides one of the most sublime moments in all of music literature. Join us as we combine forces with the chorus and orchestra from the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music in this noble and inspiring masterpiece.
