Pittsburgh Girls Choir Concert

December 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Holiday Concert

Ceremony of Carols

The Pittsburgh Girls Choir (PGC) presents Ceremony of Carols: Britten and Beyond, a holiday concert with harpist Nuiko Wadden, featuring Benjamin Britten’s beloved A Ceremony of Carols.

Beautifully suited to the warmth and purity of young women’s voices, A Ceremony of Carols has become a signature work for the PGC. This cycle of eleven pieces sets to music eleven early English and Latin poems, including Wolcum Yole (“Welcome, Yule”), There Is No Rose, and Hodie Christus natus est. Composed by Britten in the dark days of 1942 as a work of hope and belief in a better future, it was originally written for SSA children’s choir: literally the voice of the future.

Tickets are available online here and at the door.
