Award-winning Providence Chamber Singers offer a special Christmas concert

Providence Chamber Singers and their conductor Lowell Friesen invite you to celebrate the season with the annual Festival of Christmas Praise. The choir will perform highlights from their repertoire along with seasonal music from across the centuries.

The program will include works such as “Resonet in Laudibus” by Praetorius, “Gloria” from Charpentier’s Midnight Mass for Christmas, and “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah.

Providence is also pleased to welcome back the Winnipeg Brass Quintet, sure to add to the festive settings of carols and songs for the season. The audience will be invited to join the chorus, brass quintet and string ensemble, accompanied by the chapel organ, in singing a selection of beloved hymns and carols.

The Festival of Christmas Praise has a strong and loyal following and the concert is a gift to the community. This concert is made possible by a number of generous sponsors. There will be an opportunity to contribute to the Providence University College Performing Arts Department.

Lowell Friesen, the Chamber Singers conductor, says: “The Festival of Christmas Praise is a great way to bring in the Christmas season.”
