Tapestry, the All-Centuries Singers, will celebrate the Christmas season with a program entitled Rejoice! It takes its name from a set of six arrangements of traditional Christmas hymns by Alice Parker. Interspersed among the Parker choruses will be seasonal Renaissance works by Handl, Isaac, Palestrina, Lassus, and Victoria; works by Elgar, Distler, and Willan; and contemporary settings of traditional carols.
Tapestry, under the direction of G. Roberts Kolb, is an ensemble of 21 voices who come together from around central New York to share their love of choral singing with one another and with their audiences. Tapestry will be joined for this concert by noted area pianist Sar-Shalom Strong.
