Maestro Barry Hemphill guides the 100-voice Metropolitan Chorus through stirring vocal performances, celebrating the chorus’s 45th holiday season with "Music to Cheer the Soul." The century of trained crooners will join forces with skilled brass musicians to take on traditional holiday carols in a concert as heartwarming as a puppy calendar roasting over an open fire. The Trinity Handbells accompany the singers with tinkling tones that recall the Yuletide season’s abundant church bells, reindeer bells, and Santa alarm bells. As the conductor’s waving hands cue musicians through rousing holiday jingles and prayerful melodies, audiences feel free to sing along with the timeless refrains.

Metropolitan Chorus

A keeper of culture in the capitol city since 1966, the Metropolitan Chorus celebrates the beauty of the human voice without limiting itself to a certain genre. Apart from symphony-assisted classical concerts and annual productions of Handel's Messiah, the chorus also shows the jazz roots of artistic director Barry Hemphill. After all, Hemphill is the son of frequent Satchmo-collaborator Shelton "Scad" Hemphill and was babysat by none other than Billy Holliday growing up. Yet even though the ensemble's influences are so varied, a common thread ties its concerts together: a strong emphasis on American composers old and new.

Customer Reviews

A beautiful, relaxing experience. The Bells' performance was a delight for my 11 and 9 years old children to hear. They were amazed with so much talent in handling the bells, specially the young girl on the left (second from left to right).
