Berkshire Lyric Presents:
Home for Christmas
A nostalgic family concert sponsored by the Red Lion Inn with favorite carols and popular seasonal carols.
Berkshire Lyric presents Home for Christmas, on Saturday December 16. The choral program will take place at 3:00 at the Stockbridge Congregational Church on Main Street in Stockbridge. The concert of traditional and contemporary carols will also include a number of well known standards form the American holiday songbook. The 80 voice Berkshire Lyric most recently sang the Brahms German Requiem at Seiji Ozawa Hall, Tanglewood. They will be joined by Lyric’s young women’s ensemble Melodious Accord and by Lyric’s Resident Vocal Artist John Demler. The Lyric Children’s Chorus will welcome a visit from Santa Claus at this old-fashioned holiday event geared for children of all ages.
The concert is under the direction of artistic director and conductor Jack Brown and assisted by Joe Rose at the piano and pipe organ. There will be many opportunities to sing along with the massed 100 singers. Santa will also make an appearance at this old-fashioned holiday event geared for families. Tickets are $20 and will be sold online, at the door, with children and students 18 and under admitted for free. Advance purchases can be made through the Berkshire Lyric website or member singers.
