We are preparing our 2011 Christmas show, “Christmas Treasures”, a trove of our favorite music from 15 seasons as The Starlite Chorale. It will be our traditional sort of Christmas show, which is unlike any other you are likely to see!
Our first half is full of the songs that celebrate the birth of Jesus – spirituals like “Mary Had a Baby” and “Oh, What a Wonderful Child”, serious works like Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (sung by the Chorale) and “O Holy Night”, sung by Barbara (as it should be!)
Our second half begins with the songs of Yuletide and Winter, like “Deck the Halls” and “Winter Wonderland”. Then we will joined by Central New Jersey’s only nonhuman choir as we sing “Christmas Is Coming”! Vin will sing Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song”, and Sir David will share his heartfelt and moving rendition of “White Christmas”, and later preside over the sing-along portion of our show. And we will invite everyone to join us in singing and dancing that grandest of all carol-dances, “Lord of the Dance”!
Please stay tuned to this blog for updates on our performances coming up this Christmas season. We of the Starlite Chorale have the privilege to anticipate and celebrate Christmas from the middle of September all the way through to the middle of January. We hope that you will come so that We can best wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a blessed, prosperous and happy New Year!
