Holiday Concert 2022 – What Sweeter Music

Sponsored by

Welcome to our 2022 holiday concert!  We’re so happy to have you with us today to celebrate the season with some familiar songs of the season and also some you may not be as familiar with.  We hope they soon become favorites for you as they have for us.

Joining us as our guests for the second year in a row is the The West Michigan Children’s Choir, We are so proud to share the stage with them and support these young musicians.

The Holland Chorale 2022-232 season, “LOVE CAN BUILD A BRIDGE!” is all about bringing people together in harmony and focusing on how we are alike rather than our differences. Sometimes it may seem easier to have those feelings of “peace on earth” during the holiday season, but we hope you will join us for the rest of our performances as we further explore these themes of unity and inclusion in our community and throughout the world.

“Considering Matthew Shepard” is an evocative and compassionate musical response 25 years after the death of Matthew Shepard in 1998. It is a fusion oratorio, blending traditional choral styles with folk, pop and country. The music is a powerful and moving encouragement to all of us: be compassionate, find kindness, embrace what unifies us.

This is music celebrating all that we have in common! The program includes works by contemporary composers Jake Runestad, Dan Forrest, Ysaye Barnwell, Gwyneth Walker. and Shawn Kirchner.  And of course, our season theme is taken from the song “Love Can Build a Bridge” by The Judds, which will close the concert and the season

Wishing you all the joy and wonder of the season and in the new year,
