The National Philharmonic Singers, conducted by Stan Engebretson and Victoria Gau, will be joined by The Takoma Ensemble conducted by Maestra Gau for this concert. They will perform a new work, "Alleluia," by popular American composer Eric Whitacre, as well as Christmas classics by John Rutter and Shaw-Parker, "Christmas Day" by Gustav Holst, and "Christmas Concerto" for the Takoma Ensemble by Arcangelo Corelli. The concert concludes with favorite carols by the choir including "Stille Nacht" and our ever-popular "Carol Sing" with the Twelve Days of Christmas.
The National Philharmonic Singers is a chamber choir and one of several performing ensembles of the National Philharmonic, which is in residence at the Music Center at Strathmore. As such, it promotes works suited for smaller ensembles, whether with accompaniment or a cappella. Its repertoire ranges from 15th to 21st centuries, and it often premieres new compositions by local composers.
This is the ninth year of performance at Christ Church with free-will offering benefiting the Community Ministries of Rockville.
Directions to the church may be found at Christ Church Directions.
