Holiday Concert:
A Brandywine Christmas

Saturday, December 8, 2018 • 7:30 pm
St Michael Lutheran Church
109 East Doe Run Road
Unionville, Pennsylvania

BVC’s holiday concert features distinguished American composer Daniel Pinkham’s Christmas Cantata (Sinfonia Sacra). A 20th century homage to the Baroque, this work recalls the brilliance of the Venetian school of chorus-and-brass music, particularly as embodied in the works of Giovanni Gabrieli. The Cantata is cast in the form of three contrasting short movements and is scored for chorus and double brass choir.

The program features a mix of other seasonal selections, including a carol sing-along.

The Chorale will be joined by special guest, Brandywine Brass.

Save the date. Tickets will be available on September 20, 2018.

(The Dawn of Tomorrow)

Unionville High School Auditorium

Brandywine Valley Chorale, along with Unionville High School Chorale, joins forces with Christian’s Compassionate Mission for an uplifting concert that raises awareness to suicide prevention.

The program features the Pennsylvania premiere of composer Dan Forrest’s newest choral work, LUX: The Dawn From On High. This masterwork encompasses ancient chant, shimmering light, unconditional love, heavenly joy, and deep peace in its setting of five texts about Light in darkness.

During the performance, Brandywine Valley artists will be creating extraordinary works of art on stage. And an orchestral ensemble will accompany the singers.

Save the date. Tickets will be available on September 20, 2018.
