“Beautiful”, “Inspiring”, “Thoughtful”, “Stunning” – Words used to describe the music in the next Bach Choir concert - A Holiday Happening. We are excited to collaborate with the Boys Choir of the Afro American Music Institute under the direction of Dr. James Johnson in what promises to be a beautiful and fun-filled celebration of the holiday season.
Our collaboration will include selections by the Boys Choir themselves as well as pieces performed together with the full choir. Most of the arrangements for the two ensembles are crafted by Dr. “J”.
The program also includes the Christmas Cantata of Daniel Pinkham and In Eccleiis of Giovanni Gabrieli. These are performed with double brass choir, and the terrific brass players from Carnegie Mellon University will be featured by themselves as well.
Composers Randall Thompson and Robert De Cormier are also represented, as well as a beautiful arrangement of In the Bleak Midwinter by Artistic Director and Conductor Thomas W. Douglas. Other works on the program will both inspire and provide an opportunity to reflect on what the season means to each of us.
About the Holiday Happening concerts, Maestro Douglas says:
“We are delighted to be working with Dr. James Johnson and his talented group of singers. They have a wonderful tradition of helping young people use music to express goodness and joy. It will be great fun for us to partner with them in celebrating the season with music both new and old.
