The Ember ensemble presents its annual “An Ember December” holiday choral concert and carols. The title of this year’s concert is “Star of Wonder” taking its name from a composition by Gordon Thornett which Ember will perform in its American premiere. Under the artistic leadership of conductor Deborah Simpkin King, Ph.D., the concert will feature a variety of choral repertoire and traditional holiday favorites that capture the joy and warmth of the holiday season. The audience will be invited to sing along with familiar carols. Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s historic pipe organ will also be featured in the carol sing. Among the concert’s classic holiday songs and carols are: “Hark the Herald Angel Sing”; “”We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, and “What Child is This?” Other choral selections include: “I Wonder As I Wander”” by John Jacob Niles, arranged by Pilkington; “In Dulci Jubilo” by Matthew Culloton; “Peace, Peace (Silent Night)” by Rick and Sylvia Powell. There will be a reception immediately following the concert where all can share holiday goodies and seasonal cheer.
