Come to our free Christmas Concert!

1 Nov

On Sunday, December 13, 2015, at 2 p.m., Holy Ghost Russian Orthodox Church, 1510 East Main St., Bridgeport, Christmas Concert 8.5 x 11 4c 1CT, will bring holiday joy to its neighborhood by hosting a free and public concert, featuring classic Christmas Carols in English and Spanish, and seasonal Gospel music.

The American Modernist Singers (AMS), an ensemble currently based at Yale University, will present the festive concert, titled, “Christmas,” with Kevin Sherwin, founder of the ensemble, conducting.

“AMS strives to make new connections for audiences and performers alike,” said Mr. Sherwin. “The ensemble explores a wide range of musical traditions and performance practices, with a particular emphasis on the late 19th and early 20th century.

“AMS shares its work through performance, education, and outreach,” he continued, “in a way reaches into the composer’s mind and touches the audience’s heart.”

Mr. Sherwin, who is also Assistant Conductor of the renowned Yale Russian Chorus, has conducted throughout the United States, including Boston, New York, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and New Haven, to name a few. In addition, he has guest conducted The American Baroque Orchestra, The Nashua Chamber Orchestra, The Roslyn Chamber Orchestra, The Jonathan Edwards Chamber Players, and the new music ensemble, Black is the Color.

Christmas Concert 8.5 x 11 4c 2Holy Ghost Church is  pleased to sponsor AMS at Holy Ghost Church. And, we are especially looking forward to sharing the joy of the Birth of Christ with all of our neighbors and friends.

Doors open for the concert at 1:00 p.m., with non-ticketed seating. Light refreshments, also free-of-charge, will be offered in the church hall after the concert. Free parking in the church’s two lots, located on Spring and Brooks Streets, is available.  Find our Church on Google Maps.
