The Pine Hill Singers wish you the warmth of a special “Starry Night!” this winter season with a celestial celebration of holiday choral music. The mysteries of the stars have been the stuff of myth and legend, and composers and artists have often taken inspiration from the beauty of a clear winter night. The Singers’ popular winter concert, a North Country tradition for over 15 years, will offer choral works from a variety of periods and genres. The Pine Hill Singers are under the musical direction of Judy Abbott and Anita Bonnevie is their pianist. Admission for all concerts is by donation.
The program will include fresh and original arrangements of the holiday favorites “Sleigh Ride”, “The Christmas Waltz”, and “Gesu Bambino”, Irving Berlin’s “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep”, and the Andrew Sister’s fun “Jing-a-Ling”. There will be the choral works for women’s voices, “Lunar Lullaby” by Jacob Narverud and “From an Irish Cabin” by Douglas Wagner; along with traditional and well-loved favorites, “The Little Drummer Boy”, John Rutter’s “Candlelight Carol”, and many more.
For more than 19 years, the Pine Hill Singers have brought outstanding performances to the local area. Our concerts include a large repertoire from classical to jazz, Broadway to patriotic, and serious to silly. The close knit choral singers from NH and VT meet weekly, and from this weekly sharing of music, we know the personal healing as well as the community outreach in the joy of music. Just after 9/11 we began to insert a quote on all of our programs attributed to Leonard Bernstein – “This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” Thus the Pine Hill Singers have established a fund for future musicians. In June 2016 we selected our 8th award recipient, Chris Sarkis from Woodsville High School.
