Civic Chorale Concert
This ever-popular concert has become a
Lorain County holiday tradition!

Lorain County Community College’s Civic Chorale, Collegiate Chorale, Renaissance Singers and Civic Orchestra will present the 37th Annual Holiday Choral Concert .  Over 150 performers representing LCCC students and community musicians from sixteen different communities will perform under the direction of conductor and Director of Choral Music Performance, Nancy L. Davis.

The concert features Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols performed by the Civic Chorale with Oberlin harpist, Caitlin Mehrtens.   The musical evening will also feature a choral/orchestral medley of familiar holiday carols entitled The Many Moods of Christmas with a beautiful “Silent Night.”  Selections from Handel’s MESSIAH, including the ever-popular “Hallelujah” chorus, will be performed by the combined chorales and orchestra. 

A special feature of the concert will be the Renaissance Singers, who will appear in period costumes and perform 16th and 17th century a cappella madrigals and motets.   Solid Brass, an all-brass ensemble, will delight the audience during the intermission with festive holiday music in the Stocker Arts Center lobby.
