The Fredericksburg Chorale Mid-Winter concert will be held at St. Joseph’s Hall located at 212 W. San Antonio St. on Saturday, February 7 at 3:00 and 7:30. The Concert, “Festival of Psalms” will feature the League of David, Rainbow Sounds - the children’s choir of Zion Lutheran Church and the Fredericksburg Chorale. The groups are all directed by Mark Hierholzer. Instrumentalists from the Chorale Mission will also accompany the program.
The program will be framed by the Chorale’s singing of Psalm 118 in seven sections. In between each section the League of David, a group of young men, and the Rainbow Sounds, will sing individually and together various Psalm settings and other scripture songs and hymns. The audience will also participate in the festival with the singing of hymns and scripture songs.
This will be the second year that the chorale features the League of David in a Mid-winter concert. The group exemplifies the idea of boisterous and enthusiastic singing for the purpose of communicating ideas and values for examining and living. The Rainbow Sounds will add to the energy and enthusiasm.
Most of the music on the program is composed by Mark Hierholzer including instrumental postludes for flute and piano played by Jennifer Hallford and Hierholzer. Traditional hymns will be sung by all, accompanied by new arrangements for instruments. The close of the program will involve all the choirs and instruments in the singing and playing together.
A reception will follow each concert with snacks and drinks. Instrumental music will continue on as the festival continues. Admission is by donation. Call 830-997-6869 for more information.
