St. John Singers to Perform Two Holiday Concerts

The St. John Singers, under the direction of John Cahill for 29 years, will present concerts to celebrate the holiday season. The first concert will be held in Cruz Bay on Wednesday, Dec. 15 at the Nazareth Lutheran Church. The second concert, on Friday, Dec. 17, will be held in Coral Bay at the Emmaus Moravian Church. Both concerts will begin at 7:30.
In addition to popular holiday songs and lesser-known Christmas carols, the choir will sing short works by J. S. Bach and a rarely performed composition for women’s voices by the 20th century Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly.

Gylchris Sprauve, best known for his pure tenor voice, will be one of the featured guest artists. He will perform “Ave Maria” and other holiday favorites. Karles Sauceda-McQuade, who now teaches violin on St. Thomas, will team up with one his talented young pupils, Alana Davis, to perform the first movement of the Bach Double Violin Concerto. Pianist Janice Ballard, who accompanies the choir, will lead the audience in a traditional carol sing.
Tickets, $15 for adults and $5 for children, will be available at the door.
