It’s been a crazy month of big happenings at work, parties and concerts. I’ve not really started my Christmas shopping (which is why I’ll never be a true Capricorn…I procrastinate far too much) but I at least know (or have an idea) of what I’m getting everyone.
Meanwhile, The Choral Project has been preparing for our upcoming concerts this weekend entitled Winter’s Gifts: Solstice. This is how it’s described on our website.
“The Choral Project and the San José Chamber Orchestra present their annual holiday offering Winter’s Gifts, featuring music that highlights wintertime and the Solstice with Native American music and traditional holiday pieces. The two ensembles combine with the stellar talents of Ann Licater, a specialist of the Native American flute, to weave a rich tapestry of seasonal sounds with which to celebrate the yuletide. Works include “Winter” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasy on “Greensleeves,” and Eric Whitacre’s Winter, set for strings, harp, sitar and choir.”
It should be a pretty good concert. Not Christmas-y but we haven’t done that in years. There are some beautiful pieces with the sitar and Native American flute. I also have a solo (really an interlude between pieces….just myself and the orchestra) that is quite beautiful.
Shows in SF and Santa Clara. If you’re interested in going you can purchase tickets on the website. Fingers crossed we have a few people at the SF show as we haven’t performed up here in years (so not much of a base).
