In what has emerged as a trademark of NHS&LCC performances, the concert will include a mixture of choral pieces and songs led by individual members of the group.
Choral music comes in a variety of composers, including Handel, Tindley, Paulus, P.D.Q. Bach, and more. Individual performances include songs from choir members Elizabeth Bowman, Jennifer Guglielmi, Jamie Brown, George Tilton, Tony Peterman, Virginia ZIegler and Giuseppe Minniti.
NHS&LCC is made up of members of the immediate New Hope, Solebury and Lambertville communities as well as several singers from the surrounding areas. The Choir is under the direction of Episcopal minister of music, male a cappella group Cordus Mundi founder, and New Hope resident Rick Rosen.
“We truly are a community choir, and we’re representative of this unique place where we live,” noted Rosen. “The idea is to sing an equally wide variety of music, to match the music to our abilities while still challenging ourselves, and to then end up with quality music and a truly fun, enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone, including our audience.”
Tickets for the NHS&LCC Dec. 7 concert at Carversville Christian Church, 3736 Aquetong Road, can be purchased at the door or reserved by contacting NHS&LCC at (650) 219-2748, or on the group’s Facebook page.
