The Princeton Singers is a small, professional, independent chamber choir. In recent years, it has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s preeminent chamber choirs. Founded in 1983 by John Bertalot, then choir-master organist at Trinity Church in Princeton, New Jersey, the ensemble was soon hailed by critics for its clarity of tone, elegance of execution, and purity of tuning. Since being appointed Artistic Director in 1998, composer-conductor Steven Sametz has expanded the group’s repertoire to range from medieval to modern, including gospel, jazz, and popular song. Today, The Princeton Singers is a vital force in the creation of new choral works. Both through a strong commissioning program and participation in workshops for aspiring composers, The Princeton Singers is strongly committed to the creation of new choral repertoire.
On Friday, December 13th, The Princeton Singers return for their popular holiday concert, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” at Trinity Church in Princeton. This crowd-pleasing presentation features music complementing Dylan Thomas’s classic Christmas story of misrule and mayhem in the life of a country boy at Christmas. Music will include traditional holiday favorites and carols. Special Guest Narrator Actor Christopher Coucill will narrate this lively, nostalgic story. This program is recommended for children ages 10 and up.
Tickets: $25, $15 for students. Shows at 6 pm and 8 pm. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the website at: www.princetonsingers.org or by phone: 1-866-846-7464.
