Light Beyond Darkness- Pemi Choral’s 50th Anniversary Holiday Concert
December 10 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Light Beyond Darkness
The 100-voice Pemigewasset Choral Society (Pemi Choral) shines a light upon the holiday season with a repertoire of songs that celebrate the Light Beyond Darkness that we each seek during this darkest part of winter. The three-concert series will be performed at Gilford Community Church on December 7, Moultonborough Community Auditorium on December 8, and at Silver Center for the Performing Arts, Plymouth, N.H. on December 10. Admission to all concerts is by donation at the door.
The concerts will include several pieces that celebrate the special significance of light during the darkness of winter, such as Light of a Clear Blue Morning arranged by Craig Hella Johnson, True Light by Keith Hampton, Oh Watch the Stars by Moira Smiley, Stars I Shall Find by Victor Johnson, as well as many other pieces and holiday selections.
“The winter solstice, when daylight starts becoming longer, is sometimes referred to as the rebirth of light,” says Pemi Choral Music Director Will Gunn. “I chose musical pieces that also celebrate light, and should be uplifting as we approach the solstice and the holiday season.”
Will Gunn was named the 2023 Choral Director of the year by the NHACDA (NH American Choral Directors Association). Collaborative pianist Laura Belanger accompanies the chorus.
Celebrating its 50th year, Pemi Choral continues to grow in membership and in attracting enthusiastic audiences. We are 100 voices with one goal—to spread the joy of choral music! The chorus will perform a specially commissioned piece in honor of its 50th season at its Spring 2024 concert series. Detailed information can be found on our website at pemichoral.org.
