Brevard Chorale presents Christmas, Secular and Sacred Concert
James Boyles and the 60-member mixed voices of the Brevard Chorale and Vocal Choral Ensemble will kick off the holiday season when they present, Christmas, Secular and Sacred, in two Brevard locations. On Wednesday, December 1, the group will be welcomed at 7:00 PM at The Great Outdoors RV-Nature & Golf Resort in Titusville. The Titusville choral concert is free of charge and will be held at the resort’s Community Church at 144 Plantation Drive. The audience can expect to hear a sleighful of seasonal favorites such as “Autumn Leaves,” “White Christmas,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “Winter Wonderland.” Beloved carols and sacred works include “O Holy Night,” “Silent Night” and “A Christmas Prayer.” The Chorale will also present some unique Advent songs, along with a delightful mashup combining “Jingle Bells” and selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Sopranos Gretchen McGaffic and Connie Maltby will be highlighted in solo performances. The second performance of Christmas, Secular and Sacred is on Saturday, December 4 at 7:30 PM at the Simpkins Fine Arts Auditorium at Eastern Florida State College, 1519 Clearlake Road in Cocoa. Admission to Christmas, Secular and Sacred at EFSC is $10 for adults and seniors; $5 for students.
