Borealis Chorale & Orchestra Christmas Concert
December 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
One event on December 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Featuring the talent of more than 100 cook county residents, the Borealis Chorale & Orchestra’s (BCO’s) annual Christmas concerts are a Cook County tradition nearly 70 years old.
This year’s concert, offered on two nights, features not only many seasonal favorites, but also the exciting world premiere of “The Lingering Light of Day,” by composer Craig Carnahan and poet Julia Klatt Singer. The creation of this new choral and orchestral work, written by Carnahan and Singer for the BCO, was funded in part by a grant from the MN State Arts Board. The piece is based on material gathered from community listening sessions the artists hosted in Cook County last February, in which participants discussed what makes the North Shore a unique place to live.
Come enjoy both new and long-loved seasonal works by celebrated composers, sung by your friends and neighbors, directed by composer/conductor William Beckstrand.
Free to the public. Donations to the Borealis Chorale & Orchestra are gratefully accepted.
