MonUCS presents Christmas... With A Difference!
12 December, 2015
Ormond Uniting Church
Monash University Choral Society presents Christmas... With A Difference! Conducted by Robert Dora.
In MonUCS' "Christmas… with a difference!”, the choir will traverse a variety of joyous, reverent, fun, and seasonal works from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The traditional choral and Christmas repertoire will include Maybrick's stirring The Holy City ("Jerusalem"), Adam's picturesque O Holy Night, Monk's absolutely beautiful Abide With Me, and music from J. S. Bach's Christmas Cantata Gloria in Excelsis Deo. The 'difference' will come with performance of P.D.Q. Bach's tongue-in-cheek A Consort of Choral Christmas Carols, Loesser's 'crooning classic' Baby It's Cold Outside, as well as fun arrangements of many well known Christmas carols and themed songs in Christmas Old Lang Syne.
