December 11 - 20, 2020
In Lessons and Carols for Our Time, Cantus offers a contemporary take on a beloved British Christmas tradition elevated by the Choir of King’s College at the University of Cambridge. Weaving together poetry and song, the program draws upon such classic carols as “Silent Night” and “A La Nanita Nana,” as well as modern works by Abbie Betinis and Saunder Choi. The concert will also feature Franz Biebl’s stunning “Ave Maria,” continuing a cherished holiday tradition. As 2020 draws to a close, join Cantus for a thoughtful, intricately crafted holiday program that honors tradition and speaks to this moment: Lessons and Carols for Our Time.
