Event Description

The Shrewsbury Chorale, one of Monmouth County's premier choruses, invites you to celebrate the Christmas holiday with a concert of fine choral music entitled, Today: Settings of a Holiday Text. The Latin text, Hodie Christus Natus Est (Christ is Born Today) has been imagined musically in many unique ways throughout history. The program will feature diverse shorter musical settings of this text by Sweelinck, Gabrieli, Carter, Leavitt, Willan, and Poulenc followed by a longer cantata for soloists and chorus entitled, Hodie, by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The performance will be conducted by Neil F. Brown and accompanied by John Balme.

The concert will take place at 3 pm. Tickets are $25 (Adult), $20 (Student/Senior), and $10 (Child). Join us for a reception following the concert.
