The Waimea Community Chorus will present its 27th Annual Holiday Concert Songs for the Holiday at the Kahilu Theatre, Friday, Dec. 13, 2019, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Ticket info below.
Under the direction of Barbara Kopra, the Waimea Community Chorus ushers in the holiday at the Kahilu Theatre with a variety of songs of the season. This year’s featured composition is “An Appalachian Winter,” a Christmas Cantata composed by Joseph Martin. This work celebrates the legacy of early American carols and hymnody. Composed in the spirit of folk music, the cantata combines traditional sounds with more rustic elements creating a blend that is fresh and pleasing. The second half of the evening’s performance will feature two Hebrew pieces, Avinu Malkenu and Al Hanissim, as well as several popular holiday songs with an audience sing-a-long.
From first time performers to well-seasoned vocalists, this year the Waimea Community Chorus has 65 members ranging in age from 16 to 86 who all share a passion for singing. Joining the singers onstage will be 20 instrumentalists from around the Big Island as they accompany the chorus members and get us ready for the holiday spirit.
If You Go… Have A Good Show!
