Ballard Winter Concert Series (Orchestra)
December 6, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Chamber Orchestra, together with the Concert Choir, will perform What Sweeter Music, composed by John Rutter, one of the best-known choral composers in Britain. What Sweeter Music sets to music a text by the seventeenth century poet Robert Herrick.
Director Brittany Newell will also lead the orchestras in presentations of Corelli’s Christmas Concerto; Rhosymedre, a hymn tune written by the 19th-century Welsh Anglican priest John David Edwards; the final movements of Grieg’s Holberg Suite; and, to ring in the holiday season, themes from The Nutcracker. The fiddlers will also perform a set of three Irish tunes.
All performances will be at the Earl Kelly Center for Performing Arts at Ballard High School,
1418 NW 65th Street, Seattle, Washington, 98117
Concerts begin at 7:30 P.M.
