Lessons and Carols with the Nova Vocal Ensemble and Immaculate Heart of Mary Children's Choir
Event Date: November 16, 2012
Posted: November 17, 2012
Location: California, USA
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Two up-and-coming choruses of excellence are coming together to bring the spirit of Christmas to Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
Please join Nova Vocal Ensemble, a 16-member chamber chorus in its inaugural season, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary Children's Choir, which took home multiple medals at the 2012 World Choir Games, as they celebrate the season of joy and giving. The choirs will take their audiences on a biblical-musical journey from Adam's fall to Christ's birth in a concert service based on the traditional English cathedral services.
Repertoire consists of some of the most treasured pieces in the choral canon, including Biebl's Ave Maria, Rachmaninoff's Bogoroditse Devo, and Howells' A Spotless Rose. The audience will also join the choirs in singing some favorite carols.
Admission to the concerts is free, though an optional donation will be solicited at the door.
