Northern Adirondack Vocal Ensemble Performance

The Northern Adirondack Vocal Ensemble will give two performances of a Festival of Lessons and Carols. Anthems, carols, and hymns illuminate the Christmas story along with community readers and congregational singing in the beloved tradition of King's College, Cambridge:

-Saturday December 21st at 7:30 p.m. at St. Peter's Church in Plattsburgh

-Sunday, December 22nd  at 4:00 p.m. at St. Agnes Church in Lake Placid
NAVE, under the musical direction of Andrew M. Benware, is a mixed chamber choir of professional and amateur singers that perform choral music from a variety of periods and styles with harmonies of four to eight parts.

Community members will read the texts, which include passages from Genesis and the Gospels, as well as a contemporary poem, "Annunciation," by Denise Levertov. The audience is invited to join
with the choir in congregational singing accompanied by University of Notre Dame organist and Potsdam native Benjamin A. Stone. These familiar Advent and Christmas hymns include "Once in Royal David’s City," "Come, O Long Expected Jesus," "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Silent Night," "While Shepherd's Watched Their Flocks by Night," "As With Gladness Men of Old," and "O Come, All Ye Faithful."
