J.S. Bach: Weihnachts-Oratorium

Edmond Community Chorale cordially invites you to attend our Holiday Concert on Friday, December 2, 2022, at Rose State College Hudiburg Chevrolet Center (6000 S Prosper Blvd, MWC, OK 73110), at 7:30 p.m.

Under the direction of Tracey Gregg-Boothby, and in conjunction with First Presbyterian Church of Edmond Chorus and Rose State College Chorus, the concert will feature Bach's Weihnachts-Oratorium ("Christmas Oratorio").  One of Bach's most famous choral works, the Christmas Oratorio is a work of joyful optimism that tells the story of Jesus' birth and adoration.

Admission to the concert is free; guests are invited to bring an unwrapped toy to benefit the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner. An Oklahoma City Christmas Day tradition since 1947, the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner provides warm meals and toys to thousands of people each year.

For many years, one of Edmond Community Chorale’s own, the late Barbara Atteberry, graciously gave of her Christmas Day to play the organ at the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner, insisting that she play until the last person was served. In 2014, in Barbara’s memory, ECC began collecting toys each year to benefit Red Andrews Christmas Dinner. Over the years, ECC members and guests have donated over 3,100 toys and books to Red Andrews. So, again this year, in honor of Ms. Atteberry, we are collecting donations to benefit the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner—an organization that she loved.

Mark your calendars to join ECC for their Holiday Concert, as we celebrate the season and support a worthy cause. Reception to follow.
