Holiday Concert Program
To Include âChristmas In Walesâ
The Newtown Choral Society will present its holiday concert, including âA Childâs Christmas in Wales,â a musical cantata by Matthew Harris, on Saturday, December 11. The concert will begin at 7:30 pm at the meeting house, 31 Main Street in Newtown.
Under the direction of Mary Andreotta and accompanied by Susan Anthony-Klein, the cantata, first performed in 2002, has set to music the text by Dylan Thomas.
The choir will also sing favorite songs and carols of the season, including the comic âYouâre A Mean One, Mr Grinchâ and âDig That Crazy Santa Claus.â Other favorites will include âCarol of the Bells,â âDo You What I Hear?â âThe Little Drummer Boyâ and Mel TormÃ©âs âThe Christmas Song.â
There will also be a special presentation of âLullay My Liking,â a 14th Century song thought to be the basis for the word âlullaby,â and the audience will be invited to join in for âO Come All Ye Faithful.â
Now in its 24th year, the non-audition choir accepts members from all area towns.Â
Tickets are $10, $8 for seniors and age 12 and under, and will be available at the door. Call 203-426-3769 for more information.
