Christmas Eve Choral Concert 

When: Sat., Dec. 24, 10:30 p.m. 2011
Many local music lovers are familiar with St. George’s Episcopal Church. Known for promoting arts and culture, St. George’s lives up to its reputation tonight with a holiday performance of Ottorino Respighi’s Laud to the Nativity. For anyone looking for a last-minute injection of holiday cheer, this late evening show should do the trick. The concert will feature both choral and solo performances, and the church has tried to evoke the feeling of old-time, rustic caroling for a nostalgic tribute to the holiday. Those who have tired of the overplayed soundtrack to the holidays can add some spice with Respighi’s haunting mix of Baroque influences. Born in 1879, the Italian composer married historic and national traditions in his work. Take a break from frantic gift-wrapping and family antics to for some rare, elusive holiday peace.
