FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, 5555 North Federal Highway, invites all to kick off the Christmas season and celebrate through music at a Christmas concert on Friday, December 4, 2015 at 8 p.m. The fourth concert in the church's 2015-2016 Concert Series, being held in the church's Sanctuary, will feature the Master Chorale of South Florida.
"The Master Chorale of South Florida includes some of the best singers from Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, so we are extremely honored to have them grace our stage," said Chelsea Chen, Artistic Director of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church Concert Series. "Their strong repertoire of choral music made them the perfect choice to help us celebrate the coming Christmas season."
The Master Chorale of South Florida Christmas concert will feature some timeless Christmas classics performed along with some classical compositions. The musical selections will include "Once in Royal David's City," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "O, Come, All Ye Faithful," along with Wilhousky's "Carol of the Bells" and Luboff's "Still, Still, Still."
The Chorale communicates the transformative and unifying power of choral music by performing a rich and varied repertoire. For years, the Master Chorale has delighted South Florida audiences with classical music's greatest works. In addition to its own concert series, the Chorale has been featured for guest performances with other musical organizations, including the Cleveland Orchestra, New World Symphony, Russian National Orchestra, Andrea Bocelli, Itzhak Perlman, Franz Welser-Möst, Giancarlo Guerrero, and James Judd.
"In addition to enjoying the music from this incredibly talented group, attendees will be able to lend their voices to sing along with the Chorale to a few of the Christmas classics," said Chen. "The words to some of these favorites will be printed in the program to ensure that everyone can participate."
The Master Chorale of South Florida Christmas Concert will also include a special candle-lighting ceremony.
