Christ Church Cathedral 1117 Texas Avenue Houston, Texas 77002
Pre-concert talk by ensemble members at 4:15pm
Like Saint Nicholas, The Rose Ensemble returns to Houston for a joyful evening of glad tidings and good cheer. From Shaker hymns and Colonial anthems to ballads, country dances and shape-note hymns, this extraordinary performance highlights the early forms that will later give birth to bluegrass and old-time music. Journey through the dance halls of Boston to the hills of Appalachia, as the singers and instrumentalists explore the harmonies of early American Christmastide music.
The ensemble, regularly featured on American Public Media and National Public Radio's Performance Today, reawakens history with vocal music that stirs the emotions, challenges the mind, and lifts the spirit. Experience a fresh take on the sounds of the traditional yuletide season!
The Yuletide celebration will start at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at Christ Church Cathedral, 1117 Texas Ave., Houston 77002. A pre-concert talk with ensemble members begins at 4:15 p.m
