Awakening Light
An Orchestral Evensong for Advent
Featuring FBCA Chamber Orchestra and Tate Addis, Organist
Sunday, December 12th @ 7:00 p.m.

This concert of Christmas classics, orchestral carols, and an exhilarating work for organ and strings will be a highlight of the Advent season. Classics will include the beautiful “Evening Prayer” from Hansel and Gretel, Bach’s “Wachet Auf,” Corelli’s “Christmas Concerto,” and “Gabriel’s Oboe” from the movie, The Mission.

Six orchestral settings of carols will be offered including “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “The Bell Carol,” “Wexford Carol,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” The centerpiece will be Margaret Sandresky’s exciting “Dialogue for Organ and Strings.” These sounds of hope, peace, joy, and love will celebrate the dawning of Awakening Light in our hearts and for our world.
