Event has passed
Sheepscot Chorus invites you to "Bach and Christmas Pops!" on 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 3 at the Boothbay Harbor Congregational Church. 125 Townsend Ave. Professional soloists and a chamber orchestra will join the chorus for these popular holiday concerts. "We are pleased to perform such a masterpiece for the community," says director Linda Blanchard about the "Magnificat."
Holiday Pops favorites accompanied by a chamber orchestra will round out the second half of the program. A highlight will be two new arrangements by English composer Paul Ayres, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," and "Winter Wonderland." "Santa Claus is Comin'" features an astounding fugal treatment of the well-known tune.
Co-director and accompanist Sean Fleming has a knack for bringing together top-notch musicians for our holiday pops orchestra, sure to set toes tapping! The fabulous soloists for the concerts include soprano Mary Sullivan, alto Joelle Morris, tenor David Myers-Wakeman, and bass Joshua Miller.
