Manchester Choral Society Winter Concerts

By Manchester Choral Society (other events)

2 Dates Through Dec 11, 2022

The Manchester Choral Society and orchestra celebrates this holiday season in two historic venues: New Hampshire’s oldest public high school, Manchester High School Central (founded in 1846), and the west side’s beautiful Ste. Marie Church (dedicated in 1899).

The combined choirs and orchestra present “The Ballad of the Brown King,” a cantata by Margaret Bonds written in honor of the African King, Balthazar, with texts by Langston Hughes.

The program also features Canadian composer, Sarah Quartel’s “A Winter Day,” with texts by Sara Teasdale and Lucy Maud Montgomery. Familiar holiday carols complete the concert, including several opportunities for the audience to sing-a-long with the chorus and orchestra!
