San Juan Singers have been ser­e­nad­ing our com­mu­ni­ty for near­ly forty years; it isn’t just a con­cert any­more… it has become part of our Island tra­di­tion. Angel Michaels is hop­ing our audi­ence will leave these con­certs with their hearts a lit­tle lighter, and their heads filled with res­o­nances that can only be heard in live concerts.

“Christ­mas Reflec­tions” will fea­ture Gor­don Thornett’s “Glo­ria in D” for an upbeat pos­i­tive feel, with sparkling brass, ground­ed with tim­pani, and a sopra­no solo by Jamie Mount­ford. Angel said that the SJ Singers will be the fourth Amer­i­can cho­rus to per­form it.

Also, the cho­rus will be singing “Hodie/Today on Earth”, a piece com­mis­sioned by Gar­ri­son Keil­lor for his show “Prairie Home Com­pan­ion”. It pre­miered in New York City at the Town Hall in 2012. “It is four min­utes of joy wrapped up in a cou­ple of com­pli­men­ta­ry melodies and a love­ly mar­riage of old and new har­monies,” said Michaels.

Along with the new pieces, old favorites will also be per­formed and the Sound Vibra­tions will be spe­cial guests. Their close har­monies, and upbeat per­for­mances are a crowd favorite.
