The holiday season is a time for gathering with joy; a time for celebrating with music. This was not possible last year due to the pandemic, but coming together in song for 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 Sunday, December 19th, at 3pm and 5:30pm at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. In addition to its own members, the Choral Society will be joined by 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.
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.” What a fantastic way to get into the holiday spirit!
