The Keene Chorale Performs The Childhood of Christ, A Sacred Drama by Hector Berlioz
The Keene Chorale will celebrate its 41st holiday season with a performance of an oratorio by Hector Berlioz, L'Enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ).  Sung in English and directed by Maestro Cailin Marcel Manson, the performance will take place at 2 PM on Sunday, December 8, in the acoustically grand St. Bernards Church of Keene, NH.  

In L'Enfance du Christ, Berlioz retells the story of the holy family as they flee the murderous jealousy of King Herod, suffer severe hardship in their travel and, upon arriving in Egypt exhausted and near death, they eventually find compassion in the home of an Ishmaelite who quickly summons his household to tend to the weary and frightened family, that hope and peace may comfort your soul.  Written in 1854, the music is sweeping and dramatic, intimate and tender, moving along the emotional journey of the travelers to the ringing intensity of its celestial closure.

In this expansive work for chorus, orchestra and soloists, the Keene Chorale will be joined by the PanOpera Orchestra of Northampton, MA, and guest soloists mezzo Jazimina MacNeil, bass-baritone Rocky Sellers, baritone Nicholas Tocci and tenor Joshua Collier.  Manson notes, "The piece gives us a chance to stretch the boundaries of the Chorale and highlight talents of those who live in the region. In our programming, I try to expand the circle of artists that we work with".
