Brandywine Valley Chorale invites you to a wondrous Christmas concert performed by the beauty of candlelight.
The program features Luminous Night of the Soul by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. This lush and majestic work is set to new text by lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri and a poem by St. John of the Cross.
We are also pleased to present a newly commissioned piece, A Christmas Carol, by Philadelphia’s David Bennett Thomas with words by poet Sara Teasdale.
The concert features other seasonal works as well as our traditional carol sing-along. A string ensemble will accompany the singers. What a delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping and busy schedules.

Brandywine Valley Chorale welcomes back English composer extraordinaire, Will Todd, and the award-winning student choirs of Unionville High School. The concert features (along with other works) the Pennsylvania premiere of Passion Music, his newest accomplishment.
Commissioned for St. Martin-in-the-Fields (the landmark Anglican church located in London), Passion Music recreates events during the last days of Jesus Christ prior to his crucifixion and his death on Good Friday.
Unlike more moderate religious-themed compositions, Passion Music is a modern, energetic blend of jazz and gospel mixed with traditional choral music..
The singers will be accompanied by a seven-piece jazz ensemble and gospel soloist — with Mr. Todd at the piano!Buy Tickets Here
