A St. Andrew Christmas
December 10, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10 – $20
Celebrate the true meaning of the season at the 9th Annual “A St. Andrew Christmas,” Sunday, December 10, at St. Andrew United Methodist Church.
This year’s concert, titled “Christmas Carols from the Aspen Grove,” will be all music, featuring internationally acclaimed British vocal ensemble VOCES8, the St. Andrew Chancel Choir, the Salt and Light Youth Choir, Children’s Choirs, a 45-member professional orchestra, and the magnificent Létourneau pipe organ.
This year’s theme “Christmas Carols from the Aspen Grove,” relates to Christ’s love for us. An aspen grove, one of the largest organisms in the world, represents hundreds of thousands of trees above ground that are bound together underground with a single root system. This year’s concert will feature sacred and secular music that will narrate the Christmas story with a little imagination and Christmas carols, both familiar and unfamiliar. The concert will conclude with Paul McCartney’s “Celebration,” a piece he wrote for his late wife Linda.
Established worldwide as premier a cappella vocalists, the performers of VOCES8 tour extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia. With an ongoing program of recordings and live broadcasts, VOCES8 is heard regularly on international television and radio.
Don’t miss this festive opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sit back and reflect on the true joy and wonder of the season. Shows at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Tickets available beginning October 30th and can be purchased online or by calling (469) 385-1810.
