A Feast of Carols Returns to St. Paul’s Episcopal
PHILADELPHIA, PA–Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia (MCC) is thrilled to return to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill for our annual holiday performance. On December 10 at 5pm, MCC’s signature seasonal program, A Feast of Carols, will blend global holiday music with beloved sing-along carols!
“This concert is always one of my favorites,” says MCC Artistic Director Paul Rardin. “The music moves continuously throughout the beautiful St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, and ranges from classical highlights such as Bach’s joyous Ehre sei Gott to popular selections, including Bruce Saylor’s thrilling arrangement of Go Tell It on the Mountain. The brilliance of the brass and organ, and the richness of the audience joining their voices to ours for traditional carols, make this concert a true highlight!”
Help us sing in the holidays with A Feast of Carols, including Michael Stairs on organ and the Mendelssohn Brass on accompaniment. Then, join us for our family-friendly event, The Glorious Sound of Christmas at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, December 15-17. MCC will sing more holiday favorites–this time with the Philadelphia Orchestra as conducted by Thomas Wilkins, Principal Conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra,
