Easton Choral Arts Society presents its 2023 Holiday Concert, "Home for the Holidays". Travel through the United States as this program takes the audience through a festive stylistic journey from Southern gospel to Midwestern folk to the Northeastern crooners and West Coast Hollywood flare. Even the islands from both the Atlantic and Pacific (Puerto Rico, Hawaii and more) will share their Christmas spirit. The program also features glorious works celebrating the sacred miracles of Hanukkah, the cultural principles of Kwanzaa, and the traditional sacred melodies of Christmas.
The chorus will sing the world premiere of the song "Santa Lucia”. Composed by ECAS' Artistic Director, Alexis Renee Ward, it was influenced by the traditional "Festival of Lights" which was first observed along the banks of the Delaware River in the 1600s by settlers in New Sweden. Accompanying the chorus will be a professional guest instrumental ensemble of piano, percussion, and strings.
