2019 Christmas Cantata “Appalachian Winter”
December 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for the premiere musical event of the Christmas Season at Trinity as the Chancel choir, accompanied by Orchestra, present Appalachian Winter by Joseph Martin.
The composer talks about the piece
Composed in the spirit of folk music, the cantata combines traditional sounds with more rustic elements creating a blend that is fresh and pleasing. Popular American carols like Away In a Manger and O Little Town of Bethlehem dance with traditional spirituals such as Children, Go Where I Send Thee and Go, Tell It on the Mountain. Sacred Harp tunes are re-tooled for Advent and stand alongside new versions of Shaker hymns and Appalachian melodies. Thoughtful narration weaves the movements together in a meaningful tapestry of song and Scripture
This is a don’t miss event. Please mark your calendars now.
