Renaissance City Choirs: Shine from the Heart!
We are passionate about our music-making and about bringing fabulous concert experiences to our community. We share our heart’s usic for your heart’s warming.
Sunday, December 9, 7 pm
Carnegie Music Hall
4400 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA, 15213
Banish the chill with the warm sounds of our music-making: holiday music from the Renaissance City Choirs. Many of the spiritual/religious/secular traditions in December involve light in some way. This concert will warm your heart and draw us all together across our various cultural divides as we share familiar songs (including the annual sing-along of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”) and some new sassy music as well. Featured on this concert will be a premiere of a Holiday piece commissioned by the RCC, written by composer Jake Heggie (composer of the opera Dead Man Walking) and lyricist Mark Campbell (lyricist for the opera Silent Night, winner of 2012 Pulizer Prize in Music)!
We are joined this year by the wonderful Edgewood Symphony Orchestra (http://www.edgewoodsymphony.org) and the powerfully moving GLBTA youth performance group Dreams of Hope (http://www.dreamsofhope.org/).
Make this concert your winter holiday tradition.
