Brevard Community Chorus: Gloria! A Christmas Celebration
King Center for the Performing Arts presents…
December 10, 2022 | 7:30 PM
The concert will feature Gloria by Francis Poulenc. Members of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra will accompany, and Amy Cofield will be soprano soloist.
Also on the program are Robert Russell Bennett’s Many Moods of Christmas. These delightful arrangements of familiar Christmas carols are sure to warm the hearts of everyone in attendance.
And finally, the concert will feature the world premiere of The Unknown Region by David Brunner. The piece was commissioned by the Brevard Community Chorus in celebration of their 50th anniversary in 2019, but because of the pandemic, they were unable to present the premiere until now. Dr. Brunner is the recently retired director of choral activities at University of Central Florida and a composer with worldwide stature. The text of the piece is by Walt Whitman and celebrates the fact that the chorus has been offering opportunities for volunteer singers on Florida’s Space Coast since 1969.
