Sing We Now of Christmas: Music of Harry Simeone, Bing Crosby, and Louis Armstrong
Join the Souhegan Valley Chorus for “Sing We Now of Christmas: Music of Harry Simeone, Bing Crosby, and Louis Armstrong” a concert of holiday songs from our childhoods.
SVC director, Jennifer K. Erdody explains, “The inspiration for this year’s Christmas concert is the Harry Simeone Christmas album that many of us listened to when we were kids. First released in 1959, this album has been a standard in homes for decades now. We were thrilled to find the exact arrangements in print that are performed on the album! This late ’50s early ’60s music is paired with contemporaries Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong. Armstrong’s “‘Zat You, Santa Claus?” and Bing Crosby’s “Mele Kalikimaka” are two lesser known Christmas songs, while we also include more well-known classics such as “Christmas in Killarney” and “White Christmas.”
Kimberly Vars Whitehead accompanies the chorus of 70+ members from the Milford-Amherst area and surrounding towns. Join Souhegan Valley Chorus for this evening of holiday music at Souhegan High School in Amherst NH at 7:00pm! Admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and is free for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased online, from chorus members, and at the door on the day of the performance.
We hope to see you there!
