Christmas in Harvard Square

This season’s iteration of “Christmas in Harvard Square” features a Christmas program that originates across the globe - including music from Nigeria, Germany, France, the Ukraine, the West Indies, Austria, and Harvard Square itself!  Immerse yourself in a holiday traditional like no other,  and enjoy audience favorites like “Joy to the world”, “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night”, as well as a medieval French processional hymn, a lively West Indian Calypso carol, and John Rutter’s powerful, uplifting work, “Gloria”. The boy choristers are joined by the professional male singers from Saint Paul’s Choir, an ensemble renowned for its audible beauty and passionate performances. The concert also features audience sing-alongs, accompanied by the virtuosic Back Bay Brass ensemble, together with percussion and the majestic Saint Paul’s pipe organ. A cameo appearance by the youngest choristers of the choir delight in a beloved arrangement of “Silent Night”, originated by SPCS Founder Theodore Marier.

Not to be missed! This year's Christmas in Harvard Square will also feature the world premiere of Director of Music Mr. James Kennerley's original composition Love Came Down at Christmas!
