On December 6, 2009 at 4:00 p.m., The Queen Anne’s Chorale will present its Christmas concert, “Holiday Pops”. The single performance will be held at the Todd Performing Arts Center at Chesapeake College on Rt. 50 in Wye Mills, MD. A reception will follow, enabling the audience to join Chorale members in the Christmas spirit.
The Chorale is very honored to have as its artistic director, Mr. Robert Huntington, who begins his 8th year directing the 60 voice singing ensemble. Mr. Huntington carefully selects quality repertory for each concert and has become well known for his excellent musicality and creative programming. Accompanist, Cindy Bidinotto-Slate brings another high level of expertise to the Chorale’s successful performances as well.
This season’s concert will launch the Christmas season with some great standards such as “Silver Bells”, “We Need A Little Christmas”, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”, “Let It Snow”, and “White Christmas”. Talented soloists from the Chorale will perform and a combo of bass and drums will accompany many of the selections. Kids of all ages will especially enjoy the presentations of “ ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and “The Grinch”. The audience will have the opportunity to participate in singing as well. This performance is sure to put its listeners in the “holiday” spirit!
Tickets are sold at the door or through Chorale members and are $10.00 for adults. Children through high school are admitted free. The concert venue is handicapped accessible.
In keeping with the Queen Anne’s Chorale community outreach, this Christmas concert will also be performed at William Hill Manor on Monday, December 14. The Chorale has been performing for the retirement community there for many years.
The Queen Anne’s Chorale is funded in part by directed or designated support from federal employees through the Combined Federal Campaign and grants from the United Way of Queen Anne’s County, Queen Anne’s Arts Council, and the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
