Annual Christmas Concert at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs @ Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church | New York | United States

The Sacred Music Society of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church (Forest Hills, NY) presents its ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CONCERT on Sunday, December 15 at 4:00 pm. The Sacred Music Society joins with the Oratorio Society of Queens to perform this concert under the artistic direction of Maestro David Close, Music Director of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs.

The program includes the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah and beloved Christmas carols and holiday favorites. The performance features Jennifer Gliere, soprano, John Easterlin, tenor and Nathan Bahny, bass-baritone with the Orchestral Arts Ensemble of Queens.

In the second half of the program, “The Many Moods of Christmas, Suite 1,” a suite of carols of the season from the incomparable team of Robert Shaw and Robert Russell Bennett including “Adeste Fideles” and “Silent Night!” will be performed. The magic of tenor John Easterlin returns from a long engagement in Broadway’s “Phantom of the Opera” to bring us, once again, his thrilling “Ten Thousand Joys.” Take a ride in the snow this year and join in fun as we all clap along to Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” an enduring holiday favorite! Lift your voices in song with the entire chorus and orchestra in “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing.” “O Holy Night” rounds out our concert that is not to be missed.
