Join the Hilton Head Choral Society at their annual holiday concert “Light & Lighter” on Friday, December 15 at 7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 540 William Hilton Parkway, Hilton Head Island, SC. The evening will feature the 83-voice chorus with orchestra, and promises to capture the joy, magic and effervescence of the holiday season.
Continuing “A Season of Illustrations & Inspirations,” this holiday concert will begin with an inspiring illumination of musical excellence. Whether you are hanging Christmas lights or have Menorah candles burning brightly at your home, the repertoire will surely get you in the holiday spirit. The evening also includes some lighter, fun and familiar holiday songs…sure to bring some warm nostalgia to the season!
Rushingbrook Children’s Choir from Greenville, SC will be accompanying the HHCS for this celebration of the season. In
their eighth season, the RCC’s eloquent, youthful voices will be a magnificent addition to the “Mass of the Children” to enhance the concert.
Concertgoers will be flooded with memories of holidays past with pieces like “Joyous Carols of Christmas,” “Believe (from the movie Polar Express) and “Breath of Heaven.” Everyone will be delighted to sing along to classics like “Sleigh Ride.” And the audience will leave with a sense of peace in their hearts and ready for the holiday season as the evening concludes with a memorable performance of “O, Holy Night.”
This year, the Choral Society is teaming up with the United Way of the Lowcountry as they partner with Toys for Tots, Agape Family Life Center, Antioch Educational Center, Bluffton Self Help, Deep Well Project, Love House Ministries, and The Salvation Army for Operation Holiday Heroes. This initiative is a two-county collaboration to assure that every child and family in need throughout Beaufort and Jasper Counties has toys and food this Christmas. We invite all concertgoers to bring a NEW, unwrapped musical toy to the concert to help bring the joy of Christmas to children and families in our community through Operation Holiday Heroes.
