Christmas Community Choir Come-togethers
Date: May 17, 2014
Have you ever held a community event with a number of choirs coming together to celebrate Christmas (traditional Christian Christmas) in a large church in your community?
I used to do this when I was younger and I just heard it is still happening. Each choir performed one piece (anthem) and Christmas Carols separated each selection. During these carols the choirs moved about and got into position. Sometimes we had a vocal solo or small ensemble. It was such great fun.
I have also heard of choirs coming together to perform a major work – eg. the Christmas part of The Messiah.
What is your experience with this kind of community event? How did you share the planning/conducting/accompanying?
What rep. ideas do you have or have you used?
The three choirs in my town are interedted in hearing about simlar stories and experiences with the hopes we might try something special this year.
Thanks in advance.
