“An American Christmas” will be presented by the 30-voice Berea Classic Chorale on Dec. 14 and 15.
The Saturday performance (14th) will be at 7:30 PM in the Community Room of the Richmond branch of the Madison County Library. No admission will be charged, but contributions to the Chorale will be gladly received.
On Sunday, the 15th, the Chorale will return to its Berea “home” at Union Church for a 2:30 PM performance. Admission is $5.00 per adult, while children and students may attend free. Tickets for Sunday’s concert are available from Chorale members and at the door. Receptions will follow both concerts.
The program, comprised of music by American composers, will feature “Gloria” by Randol Alan Bass. Colonial American music will be represented by works of William Billings. Carol arrangements by Alfred Burt, Hal Hopson, Al Fedak, Dan Forrest and Edwin Fissinger are included. The audience will have the opportunity to join the Chorale in several familiar carols.
The Berea Classic Chorale is an adult mixed ensemble conducted by Larry Brandenburg. The singers, who are from Berea and Richmond, are beginning their 7th year of presenting quality choral music. Like our Facebook Page to get updates on auditions and future performances.
