In its sixth season, Brandywine Valley Chorale (BVC) presents a holiday concert, called "Christmas on the Brandywine," on Friday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m., as part of St. Michael Lutheran Church’s concert series.
Led by Artistic Director Jason Throne, the concert features The Christmas Oratorio by Camille Saint–Saëns; with organ accompaniment by Linda Lorgus; the bell choir Jubilation Ringers; and vocal soloists from the chorale.
“The Christmas Oratorio is a beautiful and enduring work, rich with elegant choral lines and lush harmonies. The musical magic and mystery of the Christmas story are sure to delight the audience”, noted Mr. Throne.
Other concert highlights include Let All the People Praise Thee O God, which was performed at Princess Diana's wedding; contemporary a cappella renditions of traditional carols; and an audience holiday carol sing-along.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students, and are available online and at the door. Light refreshments will follow the concert. To purchase tickets, please visit www.thebvc.org. St.
Michael Lutheran Church is located at 109 East Doe Run Road, Kennett Square, PA.
