Richmond Orchestra & Chorus hosting Christmas concert

The Richmond Orchestra & Chorus Association (ROCA) will host a “Christmas Time is Here” Concert on Saturday, Dec. 14.

The popular, annual ROCA event is taking place at the Fraserview Mennonite Brethren Church on 11295 Mellis Dr. at 7:30 p.m.

Spend a wonderful evening with the orchestra and chorus, who will be performing Christmas favourites from across the centuries.

Whether it’s the baroque magnificence and tenderness of Charpentier’s Messe de Minuit, visions of sugar plum fairies courtesy of Tchaikovsky, nostalgic songs from the Golden Age of Hollywood, or other seasonal classics, there will be something to bring you holiday cheer.

“Christmas Time is Here” is the second concert in a six-concert series presented by ROCA with the next four concerts scheduled for the first half of 2020.

The concerts, featuring compositions ranging from classical to pop, provide opportunities for ROCA members to perform with local guest soloists and special invited artists and audiences to experience live music in a casual environment.

Tickets are available online at https://www.vtixonline.com/richmond-orchestra-and-chorus/1554/ or at the door.
