On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2:30 p.m., the Berea Classic Chorale will present its fall concert entitled “From Darkness to Light.” The opening section of the program will honor the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day at the end of World War I. The “darkness” of war memories will then be followed by a variety of pieces on the topic of “light.” Sacred and secular works celebrate both the Light of God as well as the natural light of the sun, moon, stars and even the Aurora Borealis (“Northern Lights”).
The featured work, “The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation,” by John Rutter will be accompanied by Chorale pianist, Laura Allnutt, clarinetist Nathan Ritchey and bassist Dustin Tenill. Other composers represented include Eleanor Daley, John Leavitt, Howard Helvey, Ola Gjeilo and Z. Randall Stroope.
The concert will be held in the sanctuary of Union Church. The church is located at 200 Prospect Ave., across from Boone Tavern in Berea, KY. Admission to the concert is $5.00 per adult, while children and students may attend free. Tickets are available from Chorale members and at the door.
The Berea Classic Chorale is an adult ensemble of singers from the Berea community, conducted by Larry Brandenburg. There will be a reception held in the church parlor immediately following the concert. Everyone is welcome to attend.
