Hope for the Holidays – Songs from Around the Globe
As our concert theme suggests, rather than a “traditional” Christmas concert, we are embracing themes of hope, peace and spirituality as expressed in different cultures. Our centerpiece will be Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez. We will also perform a Buddhist chant, a Chanukah piece, a selection from Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil, two African American spirituals and several other holiday-themed works.
We are planning to collaborate with the Mariposa Museum & World Culture Center (mariposamuseum.org) here in Peterborough, NH. This may include the loaning of artifacts for decorating our concert hall as well as a pre-concert presentation in the museum itself.
