Ars Choralis' 52nd Concert Season 2016-2017

Welcome Yule: Peace in the Midst of War
December 3, 7:00 PM: Holy Cross Church, Kingston
December 4, 4:00 PM: Overlook United Methodist Church, Woodstock

Ars Choralis continued its 22-year tradition of unique Yule concerts, capturing the spirit of peace and universal goodwill prevalent during the holiday season. Peace in the Midst of War tells the unbelievable story of the World War I Christmas Truce that inspired soldiers to lay down their arms and befriend their enemy.

The chorus performed familiar carols sung by the troops as well as music of composers such as Beethoven, Bach and Vaughan Williams, heightening the descriptions of the spontaneous peace found in letters home written by the British and German soldiers.
