Kirkland Performance Center


3:00 PM

Presenting Organization/Ensemble:

Master Chorus Eastside

Conductor/Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Linda Gingrich

Revel with Master Chorus Eastside in the much loved folk carols that flowered in the Renaissance, such as Ding! Dong! Merrily on High, The Boar’s Head Carol, Lo! How a Rose E’er Blooming, and jolly wassail songs.  And expand your soul with the soaring sounds of the ancient fifteenth-, sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Advent and Christmas classics that owe their existence to this age of artistry.  “Some of our most delightful carols originated in the ancient folk cultures of Europe, carols that we still sing today,” says Dr. Linda Gingrich, conductor.  “And some of the most heart-soaringly beautiful pieces you can imagine were written for church celebrations.  We will bring both to our stage, along with some authentic Renaissance dances presented by Seattle Early Dance.  It will be a very entertaining and imaginative Christmas presentation!”
