The combination of steel drum and WomenSing is unexpected, but perfect for Sing an Endless 'Ave,' WomenSing's holiday concerts! You can choose to celebrate this holiday season with WomenSing, under the artistic direction of conductor Martin Benvenuto, either on Sunday, December 9th at 4:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Oakland at 2619 Broadway Avenue, or on Wednesday, December 12th at 8:00 pm at the Lafayetter/Orinda Presbyterian Church at 49 Knox Drive in Lafayette.
You'll be eager to samba and calypso as we go "Latin fusion" with two movements from Glenn McClure's "St. Francis in the Americas: A Caribbean Mass." Along with these and other Latin-infused pieces, the program explores the endless eclectic possibilities of seasonal song with two Benjamin Britten carols, an audience sing-along, a sparkling arrangement of the buoyant English carol "I saw three ships," and much more!
In addition, the program will offer 'Proface, Welcome!' a selection from WomenSing's upcoming CD release: "Songs from the Old and New World." The CD will be available in early December, and can be purchased from their website and at these holiday concerts.
Sing an Endless 'Ave' will leave you dancing long after its celebration.
