As we celebrate our 70th anniversary this season, the St. Augustine Community Chorus, under the direction of Mike Sanflippo, is pleased to announce the opening of our 2018-2019 concert series with two December performances of Gaudete! Rejoice! to be presented Saturday, December 15th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, December 16th at 2:00 pm at the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. The chorus will be accompanied by brass, percussion, and strings, including some traditional carols, excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, and a special appearance by the St. Augustine Youth Chorus. It is also the 200th anniversary of Silent Night. We will include the original version in this program, which was altered slightly early on into the tune we know today. As we aspire to perform music of living composers, this program includes the music of Z Randall Stroope, Michael Engelhardt, and Dr. Peter J. Mathews. We are excited to premiere our commissioned piece to celebrate SACCs 70th anniversary, written for the chorus by Dr. Mathews, entitled “What Sweeter Music.”
