FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SUBJECT: Caritas Chorale to Perform ‘Carols of Our Time’
DATE: November 10, 2023
Sun Valley’s Caritas Chorale will perform selections from the recently published anthology, ‘Carols of Our Time’ at its Holiday Concert December 9 th and 10 th . Both concerts are slated to be held at St Thomas Episcopal Church in Sun Valley (201 Sun Valley Road). The Saturday concert will be at 7 PM and the Sunday concert at 2 PM. Conducting responsibilities for these concerts will be shared by
musical leaders, R.L. Rowsey and Joel Bejot.
Carols of Our Time, has been compiled and edited by Sarah MacDonald and Timothy Rogers. It was published on 13th July 2023. A unique feature of this anthology is that all of the carols are composed by women. According to the publishers website, “This volume brings together a broad selection of exceptionally well-crafted carols encompassing a variety of styles, moods, and characters. There is a practical mix of accompanied and unaccompanied pieces, much imaginative and technically sophisticated use of melody, harmony, rhythm, and texture, and a range of levels of difficulty. Overall, the musical content is convincing and functional, and above all, festive.”
Caritas intends to present the Sunday concert in part as a sing along, singing selections from the anthology and inviting the audience to join in singing familiar carols as well. We are pleased to announce that donations at the Sunday sing along concert will once again benefit the Hunger Coalition (thehungercoalition.org).
