A Candlelight Christmas Features Joseph Holmes, Rachele Schmiege,
Christina English & Andrew Miller

This superstar quartet brings you Christmas masterpieces

accompanied by the Festival Strings.

After an instrumental appetizer, mezzo-soprano Christina English opens the vocal portion of the concert with

a haunting arrangement of O Come, O Come Emmanuel. The first half continues with classical and sacred favorites

that include Handel’s Messiah arias such as The Trumpet Shall Sound with bass-baritone Andrew Miller,

and a rich, duo arrangement of O Holy Night with soprano Rachele Schmiege and tenor Joseph Holmes.

The second half alternates solo Christmas songs and carols with instrumentals,

among them Nutcracker excerpts, Holiday for Strings, and Sleigh Ride,

and it ends with a series of quartet numbers, including a wonderful arrangement of White Christmas

and our signature close with the Hallelujah Chorus.

Led by concertmaster Roksana Sudol, the string orchestra is augmented by Boston’s trumpet treasure, Richard Given.
