Christmas in Harvard Square
December 11 & 18 at 3pm | St. Paul's Church, Harvard Square
Saint Paul’s Choir of Men and Boys presents a spectacular celebration of Christmas and the holiday season when its popular “Christmas in Harvard Square” program returns this year with live, in-person concerts on Sundays, December 11 and 18, 3 pm, Saint Paul’s Church, Harvard Square, Cambridge. The performances feature the boy choristers of Saint Paul’s Choir School, Back Bay Brass ensemble, percussion, and the majestic Saint Paul’s pipe organ, conducted by Director of Music James Kennerley.
This season’s iteration of “Christmas in Harvard Square” features a Christmas program that originates across the globe - including music from Mexico, Ireland, Scotland, Poland, England, France, the Ukraine, and the US. Immerse yourself in a holiday traditional like no other, and enjoy audience favorites like “Joy to the world”, “Carol of the Bells” and “It came upon the midnight clear”, as well as a medieval French processional hymn, and three new arrangements composed by James Kennerley especially for the choir, which will receive their world premières.
A cameo appearance by the youngest choristers of the choir delight in a beloved arrangement of “Silent Night”, originated by Saint Paul's Choir School Founder Theodore Marier.
