Tenor Troy Koger Makes Holiday Favorites Concert Special

December 9, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Bay Atlantic Symphony’s Annual Holiday Tradition Returns!

Symphonic music celebrating Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and an audience singalong are all included in Bay Atlantic Symphony’s Holiday Favorites concert. Johan Sebastian Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring opens the Concert followed by Arcangelo Corelli’s 1714 Christmas Concerto. The second half begins with American composer Valerie Coleman’s Umoja, the Swahili word for Unity, the first of the seven days of Kwanzaa and then composer Russell Steinberg’s Lights On! – A Hanukkah Medley, a musical journey through a traditional prayer melody and eight diverse Hanukkah tunes, each representing one of the eight nights of the holiday. Before Arthur Harris’ medley of Christmas favorites including Joy to the World, Silent Night, Deck the Halls and We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Tenor Troy Koger performs with the full orchestra. He will be singing the popular Latin prayer Ave Maria, first published in 1853 by French composer Charles Gounod. Koger also performs Cantique de Noel, O Holy Night, a Christmas carol written by French composer Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the poem Midnight Christians. A popular holiday audience singalong concludes the Concert.
