Rejoice with friends and family at the Seattle Choral Company’s “A Cathedral Christmas”

Monday, November 26, 2012

Start your holiday season with the joyful sounds of the Seattle Choral Company at one - or all - of  three holiday concerts in early December. “A Cathedral Christmas: Gaudete! Rejoice!” is a glorious mix of familiar carols, innovative arrangements, and new holiday works.

The program, selected especially for the lush acoustics of Saint Mark’s Cathedral and the Bastyr University Chapel, includes two festive choral suites, “Gaudete” by famed Swedish composer Anders Öhrwall and “Seven Joys of Christmas” by distinguished American composer Kirke Mechem.

You’ll also hear well-known Christmas favorites, such as “Din Don! Merrily on High,” “Patapan,” “Joy to the World,” and “Fum, Fum, Fum!” Plus, if you arrive 30 minutes prior to concert time, you can join in the annual audience carol sing-along led by Maestro Freddie Coleman.

Featured soloists include superb harpist Bethany Man, soprano Holly Boaz, and tenor Jon Lackey. The SCC’s new 24 person chamber choir, Cappella, will also be highlighted in several pieces.

You may see some familiar faces in the group, as half a dozen members of the Choral live in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

Performance dates:

    Saturday, December 1, 2012 / 2:00 p.m. at Bastyr University Chapel, Kenmore
    Friday, December 7, 2012 / 8:00 p.m. at Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle
    Saturday, December 8, 2012 / 8:00 p.m. at Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle
