BREWER – The New Renaissance Singers are pleased to wrap up the 2010 Season with their annual holiday concert at 7 p.m.¬† Saturday, Dec. 11 at The First Congregational Church of Brewer. Additional concerts will be performed throughout the community during the month of December.
The New Renaissance Singers entered into their fall season with a new director, Drew Albert. Mr. Albert, finishing his Bachelor‚Äôs Degree in Vocal Music Education at the University of Maine in Orono, has brought great energy and enthusiasm to the organization. As the season has progressed, The Singers have grown increasingly excited about their concert repertoire.
The New Renaissance Singers will perform a broad mix of Sacred and Holiday Music, from Johannes Brahms‚Äô O Sch√∂ne Nacht and Ubi Caritas by Durufl√© to the traditional spiritual piece Go Tell It on the Mountain. New to the musical repertoire is a haunting Hebrew arrangement; Erev Shel Shoshanim by Josef Hadar. Interspersed among the sacred music are holiday favorites such as Silent Night and O Holy Night, as well as high energy jazzy mixes from Kirby Shaw.
A Holiday Gift Basket and a Floral Arrangement donated by Chapel Hill Floral will be raffled at the Brewer Concert during intermission. A suggested tax-deductible donation of $6 is welcome to help cover concert expenses.
