Description

A Holiday Concert of Carols from Around the World will be presented by The National Philharmonic Singers to benefit Community Ministries of Rockville.

The concert begins with a the mystical Gitanjali Chant, followed by Gaudete, a Swedish collection of holiday arrangements of favorites such as In Dulci Jubilo; Lo, How a Rose; and Psallite.

To balance this traditional music, the Philharmonic Singers will present new Christmas arrangements of The Wexford Carol; Sleep Little Baby, Sleep; and the beautiful, tender O Magnum Mysterium by Nicholas White.

The lighter side of Christmas music is explored with Jingle Bells; Carols for All to Sing; and the audience-favorite of Twelve Days of Christmas before closing with a moving candlelight rendition of Silent Night.

Members of The National Philharmonic Singers perform as a chamber choir. The group is among several performing ensembles of the National Philharmonic, in residence at the Music Center at Strathmore. As such, they present works suited for smaller ensembles, whether with accompaniment or A cappella. The repertoire ranges from 16th to 21st centuries, and they often premiere new compositions by local composers. This is the twelfth year of performance at Christ Church.
