On Sunday, Dec. 8 at 4 p.m. at Stapleton’s Trinity Lutheran Church, the college choirs will present their holiday concert, “Gloria!” The Treble Concert Choir and harpist Karen Stern, under the direction of Beth Johanning, will perform Benjamin Britten's evocative and mystical “Ceremony of Carols” in this centennial year of the composer’s birth. The College Choir will be joined by a chamber orchestra to perform Vivaldi’s lively “Gloria,” under the direction of Roger Wesby. The concert will also include Herbert Howells’ deep and mysterious “Magnificat,” with guest organist Kenneth Hamrick, and Eric Whitacre’s atmospheric “Lux Aurumque.” The concert will conclude with the traditional Hanukkah favorite, “Ocho Kandelikas,” and a brief carol sing. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the door or by calling 718-390-3313. Trinity Lutheran Church is located at 309 St. Paul’s Ave., Staten Island, at the corner of Beach Street and Cebra Avenue.
