ChoralSocietyCome celebrate the Christmas season at the Hilton Head Choral Society’s annual holiday concert on Friday, December 13 at 7 p.m. THE SOUNDS OF CHRISTMAS will feature the 85-voice chorus with orchestra, and promises to capture the joy, magic and effervescence of the holiday according to HHCS Artistic Director Tim Reynolds.  


The concert venue will be First Presbyterian Church, 540 William Hilton Parkway, with its resplendent decorations and atmosphere of holiday spirit, providing the perfect setting to complement the music – festive, nostalgic, light-hearted and traditional. The concert will offer a seasonal variation of the Choral Society’s 2019-2020 theme, THE MUSIC IN US ALL. Popular holiday favorites, including “Sleigh Ride” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” will be sure to have the audience singing along and tapping their feet. The program also will feature music of celebrated British composer John Rutter with his sparkling “Star Carol” and other traditional carol arrangements. Time-honored classics such as Cacinni’s “Ave Maria” and Mendelssohn’s “There Shall a Star Come Out of Jacob” will round out the concert repertoire.

The 90-minute concert will begin at 7 p.m., an hour earlier than in past seasons. “It’s a great way to go out for an early dinner with friends and family, enjoy the concert, and be home in time for the news,” says Barbara Sorkin, HHCS President.
