Holiday Concert

Come hear the Renaissance City Choir perform holiday music that celebrates the season but also brings a message of hope to those who need it most during this time of year. Hear selections performed by RCC and the stunning Edgewood Symphony Orchestra from the brilliant Magnificat by J.S. Bach that tells the story of the divine bringing a revolution of spirit, honoring the humble and meek. Listen to the story of Hanukkah through music, a story of the triumph of hope and cultural identity. As always, RCC will also bring fun to this performance, with familiar and delightful songs of the season, sung with the RCC twist. This is a concert for all ages.

Cabaret: The Power of Pop

Music to uplift and encourage the LGBTQA community in our continuing struggle for equality, freedom, and respect, drawn from the artistry of Lady Gaga, Melissa Ethridge, Paul Simon, the Beatles, Kelly Clarkson, Queen, Matt Alber, Joe Stevens, and more.

Directed by Alexandra Vansuch, choreographed by Kaitlin Mausser, with music direction from Jeffry Blake Johnson.

We will sing songs that encourage us to stand up for our values and for the respect of ALL peoples — from South African freedom songs to American civil rights protest songs and spirituals to contemporary songs that call for compassion and unity. Some of the songs for this concert of empowerment will be: Freedom is Coming, Siyahamba, People Like Us, Everything Possible, When I Fall in Love, Would You Harbor Me, I Can’t Keep Quiet, Moses Hogan’s The Battle of Jericho, and You Can’t Stop the Beat (from Hairspray).
