Join the St. Augustine Community Chorus for Gaudete! Rejoice! 2018 Christmas Concert
December 16, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - December 17, 2018 @ 3:30 pm
We kick off the season with our Christmas program on Dec. 15th at 7:30 pm and Dec. 16th at 2:00 pm in St. Augustine’s beautiful Cathedral Basilica. 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 Mathews. We are excited to premiere our commissioned piece, written for the chorus by Dr. Mathews, entitled “What Sweeter Music.”
