The Southeastern Massachusetts Festival Chorus will present its 2019 Holiday concerts on December 14th and 15th at Taunton High School.
Titled Ring Out the Bells!, the festive program will feature familiar favorites to help you ring in the holiday season! The concert will include cherished carols, such as “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”, “Ding Dong! Merrily on High”, “I Saw Three Ships”, “He Is Born,” and “Angels We Have Heard on High”.
Contemporary songs, including “Let There Be Peace on Earth”, “Ring the Bells,” and “Everlasting Light (A Hanukkah Anthem)” will also be included in a setting that is filled with the glorious sounds of chorus, orchestra, and handbells performing separately and together in full consort. Special guest performers will include the Jubilate Ringers from East Greenwich, RI and the Samuel Fuller School Children’s Chorus.
A distinctive, acoustic performance will be held at St. Mary’s Church in the afternoon of December 8th. This “preview” performance will be accompanied by flute, pennywhistle, guitar, piano and percussion. SMFC Bells, the newest addition to the SMFC franchise, will perform exclusive selections, including “Ave Maria” and “The Bells of St. Mary’s”. Other exclusive content will also be featured in this perennially favorite performance.
