Our annual holiday concert, A Song In The Air, will feature Sir Christëmas by Derek Holman.  This large work is a sequence of English carols and will be accompanied by piano, flute and percussion.  Other highlights of the concert will include the premiere of a new anthem "There's a Song in the Air" by local composer Teresa Yoder.  The Williamsburg Youth Chorale will again join us for the December performance to sing music by American composers Paul Carey and Andrea Ramsey, and will accompany the Women's Chorus to close with two secular tunes for the holiday season, "The Bells" by Lon Beery and a fun-filled setting of the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" by Jeff Funk.  The Choraliers will perform a delightful Hanukah piece by Robert Applebaum, “Funky Dreidl” and a festive rendition of “Wassailin’” by Clifton Noble.

Our spring concert, One World; One Song, is a varied program that begins with a set of sacred pieces, ranging from the late classical composer, Giovanni Battista Gajani, to the contemporary composers David Conte and Will Todd, bridged by the beloved setting of "Nigra sum" by Pablo Casals.  The next set is comprised of two lengthier works about the importance of our earth as expressed by J. David Moore, and the musical painting of a running river by Joan Szymko. The set ends with a multi-movement piece by Diane Abdi Robertson that uses the words of a 9-year-old Jewish boy's dreams for exotic journeys he hopes to take, as preserved in a school notebook and written shortly before the holocaust. The Choraliers, a smaller ensemble from the chorus, will sing three songs about romantic and spousal relationships by contemporary American composers.  The Honors Choirs from Berkeley and Hornsby Middles Schools will join to conclude the concertwith choral adaptations of Aaron Copland's well-known Old American songs, Ching-A-Ring-Ching, I Bought Me a Cat, and Zion's Walls.
