The St. Charles Singers’ 32nd annual “Candlelight Carols” Christmas concerts, a perennial audience favorite, will blend an intriguing new array of off-the-beaten path songs of the season with traditional offerings.
Conducted by founder and music director Jeffrey Hunt, the professional chamber choir’s 2015 “Candlelight Carols” program will offer 20 contrasting carols by almost as many composers, including a “Magnificat” by Johann Pachelbel, best known for his popular Canon in D major; “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Gustav Holst, best known for The Planets; and a carol by contemporary Englishman Jonathan Dove with a part written for the audience.
The program will be heard at 7:30 p.m. Friday, December 4, at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, 307 Cedar Ave., St. Charles; 7:30 p.m. Saturday, December 5, at Fourth Presbyterian Church, 126 E. Chestnut St., Chicago; and 3 p.m. Sunday, December 6, at Baker Church in St. Charles.
