2 pm & 5 pm Sunday, Dec 10: Gaudete!
“Gaudete” is a fancy word for “Rejoice,” and that’s what the singers and ringers will be doing plenty of at Derry’s 2023 Christmas concert. Featuring our Sanctuary Choir, Derry Ringers, harp and orchestra, you can look forward to hearing works including Angels Carol, In the Bleak Midwinter, Carol of the Bells, and opportunities for the audience to sing along on carols including Angels We Have Heard on High and It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. Featured soloists include Nina Cline and Christyan Seay. Join us in rejoicing in the birth of our Savior this Christmas season!
