Holiday Concert with Vox Pulchra

VOX PULCHRA was formed in 2008 by a group of 10 women who have sung together for years in the 100-voice auditioned community chorus, The Capitol Hill Chorale. The members of Vox Pulchra joined together for the sheer joy of performing beautiful music in a small ensemble. VP sings an eclectic mix of traditional music from around the world and from across centuries. This concert at the Corner Store will feature music from England, the US, Germany, Russia, Canada, and the Sephardic Jews. Vox Pulchra is fortunate to be joined by two nationally known instrumentalists Howard Bass and Tina Chancey.

Concert- Ocean Quartet “Song of Solstice”

A Celtic Winter Celebration

“Nothing short of spellbinding…”- The Washington Post

“Tis the gateway of the Year…Shortest day and darkest hour…”

Celebrate the magic of the Winter Solstice in cozy fellowship on December 21st, when OCEAN Celtic Quartet returns to the Corner Store to celebrate Yuletide.  Their boisterous program will feature British Mummer’s play recitations, traditional English and French carols,

foot-stomping Scottish & Irish fiddle tunes, 19th century broadside songs, and original seasonal compositions. With their soaring vocals and high-energy instrumentals, they are known for marrying lighthearted exuberance with great spiritual depth. The OCEAN Celtic Quartet is led by composer and ethnomusicologist Jennifer Cutting (accordion and keyboards),

a WAMA Musician of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

OCEAN features the stunning vocalist LISA MOSCATIELLO

(multiple WAMMIE winner and Artist of the Year), folklorist/vocalist/percussionist STEPHEN WINICK, plus competition-winning Scottish-American fiddler ANDREW DODDS. Cutting’s original anthem, “Song of Solstice,”

has become a classic on Celtic and Folk radio; and her all-faiths hymn,

“Light the Winter’s Dark,” has been much recorded and performed by other artists. Come prepared to sing along with OCEAN on these and other seasonal songs ancient and modern!

‘Tis the gateway of the year;

Shortest day and darkest hour;

Praises as our newborn Sun

Journeys back to its full power,

Raise the song of Solstice high,

Through the wind and weather;

Welcome Yule with frost and fire

And sing we all together!
