Special Music Sunday, Wellesley Hills Congregational Church

Special Music Sunday
WHERE: Wellesley Hills Congregational Church
207 Washington St., Wellesley Hills, MA 02481
WHEN: December 16, 2018, 10 am
Our worship service will be enlivened and enhanced by a presentation of Conrad Susa’s Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest. Our Chancel Choir and soloists will be accompanied by a chamber ensemble and conducted by Director of Music John
American composer Conrad Susa (1935-2013) created this delightful collection of traditional Spanish, Puerto Rican, Mexican, and Catalonian carols (all popular in the American Southwest), arranging the accompaniment for harp, marimba, and classical guitar to create a magical texture over which the carol melodies sparkle and dance.
The carols, which will be sung in the original languages (Spanish and Catalan), include the Spanish lullaby “A la Nanita Nana” and the immensely popular Puerto Rican carol “Allegría”.
Soloists will be Laurie Stewart Otten, soprano; Shannon Lebrón, mezzo-soprano; Christian Figueroa, tenor; and Stephen Lebrón, baritone. The service will also include an anthem by our Children’s Choir, conducted by Kirsten Oberoi.
