Performing at Seraphic Fire-First United Methodist Church (Dec 14 - Dec 14)
From the traditional opening strains of Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful), Seraphic Fire’s annual a cappella candlelight Christmas concerts are one of the highlights of the cultural season. The world’s most beloved yuletide hymn, Silent Night, will serve as the centerpiece for this year’s Christmas musical celebration. Beautiful Gregorian chant, timeless carols, and glorious motets create a holiday soundscape that transport the listener across time and space. Selling out months in advance, the only way to be guaranteed a seat for this sublime concert experience is to subscribe today!
Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
