Dec 09, 2009

Festival Of Carols BadgeCelebrate the Advent season in song at the annual Festival of Carols this Sunday, December 13, 2009, at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary. This special evening of Christmas music will be uplifting and festive, with plenty of opportunities to sing along.

“The Festival of Carols will be an evening to truly experience traditional Christmas music,” says Dr. Gabriel C. Statom, director of music at Second. “The choir, orchestra and congregation will join voices to lift up praise to God through favorites like ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful,’ ‘The First Noel,’ and ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.’ The choir will also present stunning arrangements of ‘O Holy, Night,’ ‘Go, Tell It on the Mountain,’ and Faure's haunting ‘Cantique de Jean Racine.’ The richness of this music and these texts will speak beyond our human emotions.”
