Dec 2018 – A Star in the East

A Star in the East - Sat, Dec 8 at 7:00 pm and Sun, Dec 9 at 3:00 pm

Join us this December for the start of our 2018-2019 season with A Star in the East, directed by Jana Hart and accompanied by Laurie Chinn.

We are excited to perform some beloved, traditional carols.

This concert also features a suite of Appalachian carols called A Star in the East, with guest accompanist Carl Thor on Hammered Dulcimer.

The gorgeous Laud to the Nativity by Resphigi will be accompanied by a woodwind orchestra and some of the best wind players in the northwest.

Vaughan Williams’ Magnificat features Soprano Kirsten Hart of Boston Lyric Opera singing the part of Mary. Kristin will also perform in Laud.

We also welcome back the award winning Battle Ground H.S. Jazz Ensemble, directed by Darcy Schmitt. They will perform a set of jazzy, holiday carols.

The audience will be invited to join the choir as they sing The Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah, and will be invited back on December 21st to participate in the choir’s first annual community “Sing Along Messiah”.
