St. Mary-St. Catherine of Siena Parish together with Friends of the Charlestown Library & Hammond Residential Real Estate Announce a Free Holiday Concert on Sunday, December 13th at 3:30 at St. Mary’s Church, 55 Warren Street
The Copley Singers, Brian Jones, Director, returns this year this year with another popular and wide ranging a wide-ranging program of familiar carols and anthems in both traditional and new, interesting arrangements, both sacred and secular. There will be audience participation in three carols, and the singers will mingle with the audience at several times. Other Christmas favorites will include as “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming,” Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Silent Night.”
The concert is free with a suggestion of donations to Harvest on Vine Food Pantry.
The Copley Singers, a Boston-based choir founded in 2006, is a congenial group of auditioned volunteers and professionals—all dedicated to the art of fine singing and the joy of communicating their love of this art to the public.
Brian Jones is Emeritus Director of Music at Trinity Church, Copley Square, Boston, an active organ concert artist and guest conductor with many recordings to his credit.
The Woodberry and Harris organ, in place since St. Mary’s consecration in 1892, stands more than halfway through its first restoration. A Palm Sunday Concert will celebrate its completion. The Estey two-manual and pedal reed organ and the Steinway model M will do their utmost to stand in for the noble instrument.
