Cold Winter Nights Concert by Harstine Island Island Community Choir
Date: December 8, 2018
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This year, the Harstine Island Community Choir’s annual Christmas Concert presents traditional favorites from the rich cultural heritage of Scandinavia. Conductor Elizabeth Berndt starts the program with a well-known Swedish tradition in which a young girl representing St. Lucia, wearing a halo of candles, celebrates the beginning of longer days and shorter nights with festive song.
Many works are sung in part in their original languages for listeners to experience the original feeling and sound of the song, but also in English for easier interpretation and enjoyment. The choir also includes our traditional Christmas favorites to round out a program that your whole family will enjoy.
