The time is near for this year’s December 15 benefit Christmas concert at St. David’s Episcopal Church: An American Village Christmas. The 3 pm concert will feature Advent and Christmas hymns and anthems by American composers found in The Sacred Harp, The Southern Harmony, The Mennonite Singing Book, and The Christian Harmony, along with Appalachian melodies and African-American Spirituals.
Like last year, the concert by a 25-voice choir directed by Richard Lind will be sung unaccompanied except for a couple of instrumental pieces on piano and saxophone which will be interspersed among the choral works.
Admission to the concert is free of charge. However, monetary donations to the Joyce L. Sobel Family Resource Center or non-perishable items for the Friday Harbor Food Bank will be gratefully accepted.
Saint David’s Episcopal Church is located on the corner of Park Street & Marguerite Place in Friday Harbor, Washington.
