Event starts in
In our first live concert in over two years, the Peninsula Women’s Chorus celebrates being together with classic choral works interwoven with the ethereal sounds of the harp. Opening with Alice Parker’s rousing setting of “Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal” followed by Brahms’s first choral work, the lilting “Ave Maria,” PWC presents Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols as a journey, choreographed and staged by local director and choreographer MaryStarr Hope. The second half, a further exploration of what it means to gather through music and movement, will feature Franz Biebl’s much-loved “Ave Maria,” Machaut’s “Rose, Liz, Printemps, Verdure,” Rehnqvist’s “I Himmelen,” and the exquisite “Dirait-On,” by Morten Lauridsen. Ending the concert are seasonal favorites “Ding Dong Merrily on High,” arranged by local composer Eric Tuan, and “Silent Night.” In collaboration with stage director MaryStarr Hope and harpist Jennifer Ellis, PWC celebrates the joys of the season through live music together.
