Texas Choral Consort rocks the house… errr… church

Each year December is jammed packed with holiday parties, performances, and gatherings.  It’s tough to choose what to attend and what to skip.  I had a jammed packed weekend (it seems everyone I know was born in December) but I’m so delighted that I took some time to attend Texas Choral Consort’s Carols & Lullabies last Saturday night.


The program consisted of some familiar and some not so familiar holiday tunes.  Benjamin Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” was performed with vigor and oomph ending the first half of the concert on a perfect note.


The real gem of this concert, however, was Conrad Susa’s “Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest” where lullabies and seasonal songs were played from the south west corners of the world.  Several songs were sung in variations of Spanish.  My favorite without a doubt was the Nigerian song that ended that collection.  Conductor Brent Baldwin asked audience members to take our keys out and provide a little added percussion to the group.  As always Texas Choral Consort provided a quality, upstanding performance while remaining fun and interesting. Can’t wait to see what they perform next holiday season!
