The North Country Chorus presents its
75th Annual Holiday Concert
Friday, December 1 at 7:30 PM
Sunday, December 3 at 3:00 PM
South Church Hall on the campus of St. Johnsbury Academy
Admission is by donation.
Under the steady, patient leadership of our fine director, Alan Rowe, the 70 members of the North Country Chorus present R. Vaughan Williams’s beloved Christmas cantata, “Hodie." The chorus will also sing Morten Lauridsen’s lush choral setting of James Agee‘s poem “Sure on This Shining Night.”
Additional performances by the St. Johnsbury Academy Hilltones, also under the direction of Alan Rowe.
We are delighted to announce that the North Country Youth Chorus will also be with us. Our music program for students in grades 3 through 8 has returned under their wonderful new director, Cintia Lovo.
We are pleased to again open the doors to our concerts by donation. Our audiences have shown their appreciation for this policy; concert revenue has been comparable to ticket sales in previous years.
