Christmas Dinner provided by the Concord Chamber Orchestra
The Concord Chamber Orchestra presents their Holiday concert Christmas Dinner on Saturday December 6th at the Basilica of St. Josephat on 6th and Lincoln in Milwaukee. The Orchestra will feature the Winter Bonfire Suite for Chorus and Orchestra by Prokofiev. I have to admit I am not familiar with the piece and am looking forward to hearing it. I always enjoy the Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla, and that is a great piece to open the concert.
The CCO is also performing a Sing-Along of Handel's Messiah. This used to be performed annually in Milwaukee, but has fallen to the side over the last couple of years. It's great to see that the CCO is bringing it back for 2014.
You can get more information and purchase tickets at the CCO web site.
