Christmas time!  A time to embrace and rejoice in the classic music of the past and celebrate the creation of new traditions.  For many of you Christmas would not be Christmas without a performance of Handel’s Messiah.  The Messiah has been performed continually since its debut in 1742 in various arrangements and contexts all over the world.

This year the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus are excited to present the Christmas portions of this great oratorio.  Come prepared to join in the magnificent Hallelujah Chorus!  Newer Christmas standards will also be featured in this concert. Leroy Anderson’s A Christmas Festival has become a favourite of audiences during the concert season.  And of course no Christmas concert is complete without those beloved traditional carols.  Come and get into the Christmas mood with us!

No matter what your faith, creed or background, song is a part of every celebration and occasion and this is no less true for people of the Jewish tradition. In this concert the Richmond Chorus explores the wealth of Jewish music from the writing of Renaissance composer Salamone Rossi in the early 17th century through to more contemporary works.  

The Chorus is joined by mezzo-soprano Fabiana Katz for a performance of the beautiful, and very accessible In the Beginning by Aaron Copland, a telling of the Genesis story of creation. We also explore music outside the synagogue, with Eric Whitacre’s Five Hebrew Love Songs, as well as a variety of music from the folksong tradition, ending with Naomi Shemer’s classic Yershalayim Shel Zahav.

She has sung with many of the legends of jazz including Benny Green and Toots Thielemans; sung for the King and Queen of Belgium’s 25th Wedding Anniversary, performed in Twyla Tharp’s musical Come Fly Away.

This will be an evening not to be missed!
