Pine Hill Singers present “Christmas Across the Pond!”
Join The Pine Hill Singers celebrate the rich and joyous sounds of the season, with holiday music from our neighbors “Across the Pond” in the British Isle. The Singers’ popular winter concerts, a North Country tradition for over 15 years, will offer choral gems from a variety of periods and genres from Great Britain, Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Skye. They will perform English medieval processionals to works from the modern choral masters Britten and Rutter; along with traditional carols, beloved folk songs and lullabies from across the Isles: Suo Gân, Skye Boat Song, I Saw Three Ships, The Holly and the Ivy, The First Noel, Auld Lang Syne and Balulalow, and much more.
For more than 20 years, the Pine Hill Singers have brought outstanding performances to the local area. Now 24 strong, the singers are of diverse ages, musical abilities, backgrounds and perspectives. The close knit women from NH and VT meet weekly, and from this weekly sharing of music they know the personal healing as well as the community outreach found in the joy of music. Just after 9/11 they began to insert a quote attributed to Leonard Bernstein in all their programs – “This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” Over the years, their thematic concerts have featured an eclectic variety of music from classical to contemporary, Broadway to pop, patriotic to global, and strive to promote social justice, community singing – and fun! Many of their concerts benefit and promote local non-profits. Each of the last 9 years they have contributed awards to musically talented high school graduates throughout northern NH and VT.
Come, let us warm your heart and soul this winter season with “Christmas Across the Pond!”
