Sounds Of The Season: Music On The Hill Christmas Concert

St. Matthew's Episcopal Church
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Music on the Hill presents a traditional Christmas concert of the Jubilate Ringers handbell choir and Festival Chorus, with artistic directors Ellen Dickinson and David H. Connell.  

This popular concert includes classic carols and Christmas songs, both old and new, as well as favorite carols sung by all with the majestic St. Matthew's organ.

"Sounds of the Season" will feature works by the artistic directors. David H. Connell's "A Star" is a hauntingly beautiful setting of poems by Unitarian Universalist clergyman Rudolph Nemser. Ellen Dickinson's "Light in the Darkness," receiving its premiere performance, is an arrangement of twelve carols in four movements -- Hope, Peace, Love, and Joy -- for chorus and handbells with crotales
