Christmas Joy will fill the air as the Island Chamber Singers perform their Christmas Concert on Friday, December 6, and Sunday, December 8, at the Amelia Plantation Chapel. The Chamber Singers will be accompanied by an orchestra, and the concert will feature a performance by The First Coast Singers, a youth chorale sponsored by Arts Alive Nassau.
A wide range of songs, from classical pieces like Pergolesi’s “Glory to God in the Highest” and Powell’s “Christus Natus Est” to traditional favorites like “Deck the Hall,” “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing,” and “The Holly and the Ivy” will be completed by the Chamber Singers’ favorite “I Wish You Christmas” by contemporary composer John Rutter.
Dr. Jane Lindberg, founder of the Island Chamber Singers, will direct the Chamber Singers and the orchestra, and Jonathan Welch will conduct The First Coast Singers.
Concerts will take place at the Amelia Plantation Chapel, 36 Bowman Road, Amelia Island, on Friday, December 6, at 7 pm, and Sunday, December 8, at 3 pm. An opening night reception will be held in the Fellowship Hall immediately following Friday evening's performance.
