Christmas for Kids

Xmas for Kids
Presented on a Saturday morning, "Christmas for Kids" gives children the chance to share the excitement of a live concert with parents, grandparents, and siblings.

"Christmas for Kids" is about an hour long, and it features playful characters, a story with music and movement, and familiar sing-along carols. Santa Claus makes an appearance too. It's the perfect way to introduce your children to the joys of classical music.

This season's "Christmas for Kids" concert will be performed on Saturday morning, December 20, 2014 at 11 am in Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium

This performance will include the following choruses:

  • And the Glory of the Lord
  • And He Shall Purify
  • O Thou, That Tellest Good Tidings
  • For Unto Us a Child is Born
  • Glory to God
  • His Yoke is Easy
  • Behold the Lamb of God
  • Surely He Hath Born Our Griefs
  • And with His Stripes
  • All We Like Sheep
  • Lift Up Your Heads
  • The Lord Gave the Word
  • Since by Man Came Death
  • Worthy is the Lamb
  • Amen
  • Hallelujah

The voices rang out with resplendent confidence, and the sopranos had no apparent difficulty reaching the cruel and challenging high B's in the piece. The chorus's performance was the best part of the concert….the thunderous power of this unique masterpiece never fails to stir the blood, and the ovation was loud, long and well deserved.
