The Salt Lake Children’s Choir, Ralph B. Woodward, Artistic Director, will present its traditional Christmas Concerts Friday, Dec. 6 and Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8:00 PM in the Cathedral of the Madeleine (331 E South Temple). Featured will be works by di Lasso, Handel, and other early masters, as well as familiar and lesser-known carols from many lands–including “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming,” “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly,” Ill est ne, le divin Enfant, and the Peruvian villancico, “Venir, pastorcitos.” Also heard will be the title theme from the motion picture, “King of Kings” by Miklos Rozsa. The evening will conclude with audience and choir joining in several carol favorites. Accompaniment will be by harpist Lisa Rytting and organist Ken Udy. There is no charge, but admission is limited to those over 6 years of age.
The choir’s first public Christmas appearance will be at the Tabernacle on Temple Square on November 30th. The concert is titled “A Celebration of Christ” and features the choir, Vocal Point (from BYU) and Jenny Oaks Baker as well as performers from many Christian denominations in the Salt Lake Valley. Tickets can be purchased from LDS events for $10 general admission. There are two shows that day: a matinee at 4:30 p.m. and an evening performance at 8:00 p.m.
