San Juan Singers Present: Christmas Reflections
Posted December 5, 2016 at 5:45 am by Tim Dustrude
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.
Please join us December 10th at 7:30pm and/or 11th at 2:00pm at the San Juan Community Theatre. Tickets are available the Theatre’s Box Office and are $18 for adults, $9 for students, and $5 student rush at the door.
