The Vashon Island Chorale welcomes Christmas with a seasonal array of musical delight. Favorite carols like I Saw Three Ships, Once in Royal David’s City, and O Come, All Ye Faithful appear, but dressed up as you’ve probably never heard them before. Some are sure to become new favorites as well, like John Rutter’s Caribbean Jesus Child and the Nigerian song Betelehemu. We also bring to the Island music by four Seattle-area composers: Greg Bartholomew, Joy DeCoursey-Porter, Andrew Jacobson, and the late Bern Herbolsheimer. And we’ll be joined by the Vashon Youth Chorus, pianist Linda Lee, violinist Dan Brandt, oboist Çravixtha Acheson, and African percussionist Gordy Ryan. It is a night of introspection and whimsy, nostalgia and joy, with something for everyone.
Tickets: $20 ($15 senior, $5 youth)
