The Chautauqua Chamber Singers, under the direction of Rebecca Ryan, will present "Twelfth Night - a Celebration of the Season" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, at First Presbyterian Church, Prendergast Avenue, Jamestown.
With costumed singers, candlelight, readings and music both new and old, this concert has become for many a traditional ending of the Christmas season. A second performance will be at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 6, at the First United Methodist Church, 200 Market St., Warren.
Included in the concert will be such familiar pieces as "Once in Royal David's City", "Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow" arranged by Jon Rutter, and the Wexford Carol arranged by Philip Stopford. Other selections include Morten Lauridsen's "O Magnum Mysterium," "The Three Kings" by Healey Willan and "The Truth Sent from Above" by Roland E. Martin. Serendipity, the women's a cappella vocal ensemble, will be making a guest appearance at both performances.
