A Candlelight Christmas
December 18, 2016: 7pm
Single tickets: $34; $29 for seniors 65+ & students

All concerts take place at 326 Main Street
Unitarian Universalist Church, Wakefield, MA.

Soprano Rachele Schmiege and Tenor Stefan Barner perform individually across the U.S.,
and they're terrific together - in concert and
in married life.
Having met when cast together in I Do, I Do - well, they did, they did:
Leigh Barrett and Peter Miller have two grown boys and extensive resumes.
Our third couple, David Coffee and Cheryl McMahon, achieve a loving connection
on stage in North Shore Music Theatre's "A Christmas Carol" as Scrooge and Mrs. Dilber.

Concert highlights:

David Coffee singing “Toyland” and continuing over the orchestra’s lush underscoring with “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”

Duets by Rachele and Stefan: O Holy Night, The Prayer, Baby It’s Cold Outside

Leigh Barrett delivering the haunting “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”

Excerpts from the Messiah with voice and strings
Instrumental excerpts from The Nutcracker, including Waltz of the Flowers

David Coffee and Cheryl McMahon presenting “Christmas Eve”, a celebrated episode of The Bickersons,
a post WWII radio series starring Don Ameche and Frances Langford.

Leigh and Peter on “Lovers on Christmas Eve” from the award-winning 1977 musical, “I Love My Wife”

Peter Miller recreating Tom Lehrer’s “A Christmas Carol”, lampooning the commercialization of Christmas

Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with Stefan Barner to acknowledge the composer’s recent passing

Seasonal favorites, including Sleigh Ride, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Christmas never had any more heart, humor, talent, and love.
