Decorating the Christmas tree, wassailing with friends, lighting the menorah, and wonderful music: these are all treasured Holiday traditions and with good reason. It should come as no surprise then that for The Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale music is an especially essential aspect of Holiday merriment. On December 14, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Broadmoor Community Church, the Children’s Chorale’s high school age group, The Summit Ensemble, will present an intimate evening of just the kind of music and merriment that make the holidays so special, their annual Summit by Candlelight concert. Featuring songs and arrangements by notable composers such as Eric Whitacer and Rollo Dilworth, this concert gives these older singers an opportunity to demonstrate how years of hard work can pay off, and it’s the audience that reaps the greatest rewards. These young voices soar as, for nearly two hours, they present not only a wonderful set of holiday favorites old and new, but also a second set featuring songs that celebrate not only our local identity but also our national pride. Under the direction of Brad Peterson and with accompanied by his wife Colleen the Summit Ensemble, illuminated by candlelight, and with a little help from the peaceful surroundings of the Broadmoor Community Church, will transport you to a space of holiday bliss. Tickets are $10.00 and are available at the door or by calling 719-633-3562. Doors open at 6:30.
