For the second year in a row, The Ambrose School’s combined music groups, encompassing all K – 6 students along with the upper school choirs and orchestra, has received a generous grant from the Morrison Center Endowment Foundation and will present their traditional Christmas concert at the famed Morrison Center for the Performing Arts on December 6th.
This year’s theme is ‘The Hope of Christmas’ reflecting the hope that was born to all mankind on Christmas Day. The program is known for its traditional sounds of Christmas from the middle ages through the early 20th century. Chimes, strings, timpani, children and youth voices create a beautiful evening of Christmas joy.
Special groups performing include the 4th – 6th grade hand chimes, Cantavi (4th – 6th honors choir), Gaudeo (9th – 12th honors choir), a solo flutist and a guest professional brass quintet. A full orchestra and all K – 6 students will also present.
The show will open with a big arrangement of “Joy to the World” for all singers, full orchestra, and Glory Brass, our guest professional brass quintet. The second piece, also featuring all combined musical resources, will be “Cradle Hymn,” a lovely new piece by Norwegian composer Kim André Arnesen. Linnea Johnson will perform a solo flute feature by Bach, the Largo e dolce from Sonata in B minor, BWV 1030. Hand Chimes will play “O Come, All Ye Faithful” and we will conclude with the massed ensemble performing “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah.
The public is invited to celebrate the birth of our Savior on December 6th beginning at 7:00 pm and enjoy this beautiful and stirring musical presentation featuring centuries of song performed by our students through choir, chimes, and a full orchestra.
