Please join us for a very special holiday concert as the choirs of Wagner College present Mystery and Merriment. There will be some very beautiful pieces, such as Poulenc’s Litanies la Vierge Noire, Howells’ Magnificat (Collegium Regale Service), Biebl’s Ave Maria, and Busto’s O Magnum Mysterium, some carols, ancient and modern, some Chanukah music, some holiday music and the traditional Sing-Along.
Our program explores many of the dimensions of Advent, Christmas and Chanukah, from mysteries of the Annunciation and Mary’s response, the birth in the stable, through the particular ardor of Marian worship to the joyous proclamations of good news and of course, the dreidels, the foods and the festivities.
There will be performances by Wagner College Choir, Chamber Singers, Stretto vocal ensemble, Roger Wesby, conductor, and Treble Concert Choir and Hildegard Ensemble, Beth Johanning, conductor, and our marvelous guest organist, Colin MacKnight.
