The holiday season is a wonderful time to gather in celebration of music. The Choral Society’s annual holiday concert is a welcome return to East End traditions that make this season so special.
Winter Fantasia will be held on December 4th, at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. Two performances will be offered, one at 3 pm and one at 5:30 pm. In addition to its own members, the Choral Society will be joined by professional soloists and accompanied by the South Fork Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Song-A Cho. Since its founding in 1946, the Choral Society of the Hamptons has developed a repertoire of music by all the great choral composers, and attracts members from across the East End. Music by Bach, Buxtehude,Vaughan Williams and Finzi will be performed.
Walter Klauss, a frequent guest conductor of The Choral Society and musical director at the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor, will lead the chorus in this performance. When asked what the audience can expect from Winter Fantasia, he shares, “The concert presents glorious seasonal music for chorus, soloists and orchestra filling the church with joy and hope. The program ends with the audience singing carols with organ and orchestra.”
