Musicians Of The Old Post Road, Holiday Concert
Saturday, December 14th, 2019, 7:30pm
Joy to the World: Following the Light of Epiphany. The Musicians of the Old Post Road return for the fourth season in this much anticipated holiday concert. Join us for a brilliant musical journey through the ages that not only includes traditional favorites from Handel and Telemann, but expands our seasonal play list with new works and even a modern day musical premiere.
The holiday season comes to life with G.F. Handel’s familiar Pifa sinfonia from the Messiah and an audience sing-along with “Joy to the World,” adapted from one of Handel’s choruses. The program continues with pieces by two of Bach’s contemporaries: a cantata by Christoph Graupner and a pastorale by Johann David Heinichen. Our seasonal journey brings us to the present with a stunning pastorale by contemporary composer Erel Paz.
