In our first live concert in over two years, the Peninsula Womens Chorus celebrates being together with classic choral works interwoven with the ethereal sounds of the harp.
Opening with Alice Parker’s rousing setting of Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal followed by Brahms’s first choral work, the lilting Ave Maria, PWC presents Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols as a journey, choreographed and staged by local director and choreographer MaryStarr Hope.
The second half, a further exploration of what it means to gather through music and movement, will feature Franz Biebl’s much-loved Ave Maria; Machaut’s Rose, Liz, Printemps, Verdure; Rehnqvist’s I Himmelen; and the exquisite Dirait-On, by Morten Lauridsen. Ending the concert are seasonal favorites Ding Dong Merrily on High, arranged by local composer Eric Tuan, and Silent Night.
In collaboration with stage director MaryStarr Hope and harpist Jennifer Ellis, PWC celebrates the joys of the season through live music together.

You and your guests, including children under the age of 12, must be fully vaccinated to attend; proof of vaccination is required upon arrival. Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered two weeks or more in advance of the event.
All audience members, staff and volunteers will be required to wear a face mask during the time they are in the venue, including during the performance.
To ensure the safety of both our singers and our audiences, all singers will wear masks at all times during the performance. The Artistic Director will be masked when in close proximity to the audience.
If weather allows, doors will be kept open for airflow. We recommend that audiences dress warmly.
We ask that if you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 10 days or in the last 14 days have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 that you do not attend the performance. We also request that if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (including shortness of breath, cough, loss of smell or taste, fever), that you do not attend the performance.
While the PWC can guarantee that all staff and singers are vaccinated, and we know you will do your part by observing all protocols noted here, we recognize that none of these precautions completely eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
