This concert features the magnificent Gloria by French composer Francis Poulenc, along with the equally magnificent soprano Leslie Fagan. Leslie, now on the Voice Faculty at Sir Wilfred Laurier University and with regular performances at Carnegie Hall and other international venues, promises to be a Kingston triumph as well. The music of the concert will be exclusively French. In addition to the Gloria, Leslie will sing from the French solo repertoire in the second half of the concert.

A Child's Christmas in Wales is a wonderful exploration, through the eyes of a child, of the magic and mystery that is Christmas. We are pleased to have Kingston native, now Toronto actor/ raconteur Richard Partington*, with us to read the story, written by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and performed with choral intermezzi. Maintaining our focus on children, we are pleased to present the choir from the Mulberry Waldorf School as special guests. St. George's Cathedral organist Michael Capon will also join us for a carol sing.

Love is easily the most common theme in song, whether popular or oratorio, rap or opera, country or sacred. The Liebeslieder Waltzes, Opus 52 of Brahms is reputedly about his love affair with Clara Schumann, the famous nineteenth century pianist. We are delighted to have with us for this concert the dynamic piano duo of Clare Gordon and Valery Lloyd Watts, along with the emerging talent of soprano Charlotte Stewart-Juby, making her KCC debut.
