Anam Cara Sings For Holiday Cheer
Dick Brown, artistic director of the Anam Cara Chamber Choir of Idaho, leads the group of semi-professional singers from central and southeastern Idaho in a spring 2010 performance in honor of Felix Mendelssohn's 200th birthday at St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Sun Valley Road. The choir will give another performance at the church on Saturday, Dec. 11, at 5:30 p.m. The concert will present a selection of carols edited and arranged by David Willcocks and John Rutter. Words for these songs range from 14th century to modern texts, and represent traditions from England, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Flanders, New England and Appalachia. There’s even one with a calypso flavor. Admission is free. Donations will be gratefully accepted.
