Portland Brass Quintet
A ChoralArt Christmas begins our dynamic season of traditional and unusual choral offerings. This concert continues our 31-year tradition of Christmas at the Cathedral, except that we will perform this year at Woodfords Congregational Church. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception has a major event on December 8, and we are asked, for this year only, to relocate. Woodfords Church has great parking and is a landmark in the Woodfords Corner neighborhood of Portland. We have an exciting program that will feature two excerpts from André Thomas’ exuberant gospel-inspired “Mass: A Celebration of Love and Joy” and two of my favorite carol arrangements from Robert Scandrett: “Mary Had a Baby” and “Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow.” Travis Ramsey has graced ChoralArt with a festive setting of “Magnificat” for brass quintet and timpani, which we will premiere during this series of concerts. Our long-time guests, the Portland Brass Quintet, will dignify our program with their special arrangements of familiar tunes and will accompany the ChoralArt Singers in several other selections. It is a program not to be missed in the very special acoustics of Woodfords Congregational Church. Hope to see you there.
