Master Chorus Eastside sets two concerts


Master Chorus Eastside will present "Seasons of Light: Christmas and Chanukah" in two performances in Sammamish and Kirkland.

Carols will include The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy, Fum Fum Fum, Hark the Herald Angels Sing. The Chanukah side of the holidays is represented by a new work, Eight Days of Chanukah, by composer and University of Washington professor emeritus, Abraham Kaplan.

“Kaplan’s work is tuneful and folk-like,” says chorus conductor Dr. Linda Gingrich. “It captures the history of Chanukah with melodies that draw on his childhood in Israel, and texts from the Chanukah liturgy and rabbinical poetry."

Kaplan will hold a conversation with the audience on stage 20 minutes prior to curtain.

Performances will be 2 p.m. Dec. 8 at Kirkland Performance Center, 350 Kirkland Ave; and 3 p.m. Dec. 15 at Pine Lake Covenant Church, 1715 228th Ave., Sammamish

Tickets $15-$20 and are available by calling the Master Chorus Eastside office at 425-392-8446. More information on the Chorus can be found on the web at
