“There Were Angels”
Plan to attend the Metropolitan Greek Chorale’s Annual Christmas Concert, on Sunday, December 6, 2015, 4pm, featuring innovative and traditional holiday music at Annunciation Church
91st and West End Avenue in Manhattan
Under the capable leadership of Marina Alexander, the Metropolitan Greek Chorale once again presents its Annual Christmas Concert at the historic Annunciation Church at 91st Street and West End Avenue in Manhattan on Sunday, December 6, 2015 at 4pm.
Music commemorating the Nativity represents the joyous news announced by Angelic Hosts. This year’s concert – “There were Angels” – will feature a number of works about Christ’s birth, in traditional and contemporary settings, where Angels play a prominent role. The highlight will be the New York premiere of Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness’ cantata “Glory to God” and Marina Alexander’s charming new arrangement of the Basque carol “Gabriel from Heaven Came”. Other works will include music by Handel, Arvo Part and Ivan Moody and several settings of the Byzantine anthem The Cherubic Hymn. A chamber orchestra will join the Chorale’s well-regarded accompanist, Yannis Xylas, for the concert. A reception will follow.
Tickets are $25 for general admission and $10 for students (available online only).

Now in its 51st year, the Chorale is the longest continuing musical ensemble serving the Greek-American community in the NY-NJ-CT metropolitan area. To learn more about the Chorale visit www.metgreekchorale.org
