Hear Pine Hill Singers sing “Let Heaven and Nature Sing” and bring new meaning to the expression, “wintry mix”. Their mix includes centuries of works celebrating the beautiful yet often harsh winter landscape, and the heavens above it. We hear the sound of falling snow in the woods, the icy bluster of a winter squall, and when we think of the heavens and this joyous season, we hear the angels sing. Their mix will feature Days of Beauty by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo; See Amid the Winter’s Snow and Angels from the Realms of Glory, both by Dan Forrest; Gustav Holst’s In the Bleak Midwinter; Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Ruth Atman with poem by Robert Frost; the upbeat Mistletoe and Holly by Frank Sinatra and the fun Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson; and more.
The Pine Hill Singers have brought outstanding choral performances to the local area for more than 21 years. Their thematic concerts feature an eclectic variety of music from classical to contemporary, Broadway to pop, and patriotic to global. They sing to promote social justice, musical excellence – and fun! Now 24 strong, the singers are of diverse professions, musical abilities, ages and life experiences. The close knit women from NH and VT meet weekly, and from this weekly collaboration they know the personal healing as well as the community connections found in the joy of music. “This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” This quote, attributed to Leonard Bernstein, has been inserted in their programs since 9/11. Many of their concerts benefit and promote local non-profits. Each of the last ten years they have contributed awards to musically talented high school graduates throughout northern NH and VT.rs present “Curtain Up!”
