December 3rd, 2008 by Adam


PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Enjoy some holiday spirit December 7 when the 100 voices of the PSU Chorale and Chamber Singers present an afternoon of holiday music with the New England Brass Ensemble. The concert begins at 3 p.m. in Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts.

Dan Perkins, PSU Stevens-Bristow professor of music will conduct and PSU alumnus Robert St. Cyr will join the concert as guest organist. The musicians will perform a repertoire that includes the inspiring Welcome All Wonders by J.A.C. Redford, a composition
for choir, brass, organ and percussion. The program also includes carol arrangements by Gwyneth Walker and Paul Carey and the audience will be invited to join the ensembles to sing several familiar holiday carols.

Another program highlight will be repertoire from The Chamber Singers’ upcoming tour
of the Southwest U.S. that includes songs by Johannes Brahms and original settings of Native American texts, composed by Professor Jonathan Santore, chair of the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at PSU.

“This concert is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. The University choirs’ standard of excellence and polished performance of this music will inspire all of us,” said Perkins.

Tickets are $12–$8 for adults, $10–$6 for seniors, $8–$4 for youth and $5 for PSU students with I.D. at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-ARTS or (800) 779-3869.
