Candor High School, Academy Drive, Candor, NY
The Candor Community Chorus will usher in the winter holiday season with their Christmas concert on Saturday, December 14. Breaking with tradition, the chorus is celebrating the coming holidays on the second Saturday of the month. The concert begins at 7 pm in the Candor High School Auditorium, Academy Street.
This year’s theme is “He Is Born” and features several new pieces. “The Holding Carol” brings together the themes of joy, peace, and love in a tender tune that underscores the promise of Christmas. Also new to the program are a gorgeous Dan Forrest arrangement of “The First Noel” and “People Look East”. Some favorites from past years include “Beautiful December”, “Candlelight”, “He Is Born” and “Festival Sanctus”.
There will be a carol sing during intermission as well as raffle baskets. Dave Jackson directs the program, accompanied by Brenda Yeier at the piano. Admission is free, and the chorus gratefully accepts donations to support their music library and scholarship program.
