Christmas Concert, “Angelic Hosts Proclaim” is announced The Music Ministry invites you to attend our annual Christmas season concert “Angelic Hosts Proclaim’ on Sunday, December 8 as 4 pm in the Sanctuary. This seasonal concert of music for Advent and Christmas presents our Chancel Choir, Anderson Handbell Choir, the Chamber Orchestra and soloists. The concert will feature music from emerging composers, such as Kim Andre Arnesen and Ola Gjelo, as well as well-known modernists Dan Forrest, Joel Raney and Frank Hallock. One of the highlights of our Christmas concerts is inviting the audience to sing with the choir and orchestra in arrangements of carols. In keeping with the “Angelic Hosts Proclaim” theme, we will join together singing arrangements of “The First Noel High” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”. Plan now to come and join us for an afternoon of beautiful and uplifting music as we prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christmas.
