Pennsylvania Girlchoir


In contrast to the geographic breadth of our October concert, for our holiday offering we will concentrate on the depth of American tradition, as we present Gwyneth Walker's Appalachian Carols and Philadelphia composer Donald St. Pierre's In the Company of Angels, a setting of carols from the American Swedenborgian tradition. Joining the Choral Society again this year is the Fairmount Brass Quintet, along with the Pennsylvania Girlchoir under the direction of Vincent Metallo.
