The Oratorio Society, an affiliate of the McIntire School of Music, will present its annual holiday concert at the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville on Friday, December 21 at 8:00 p.m. Accompanied by an orchestra composed of professional musicians from the Charlottesville area and beyond, the 90-member choir will perform J.S. Bach's Cantata 191, /Gloria in excelsis Deo/, an abbreviated and seasonal version of the Gloria movement from Bach's celebrated /B-Minor Mass. The family-friendly concert program will also include a selection of favorite holiday carols, including the rousing Musicological Journey through the Twelve Days of Christmas/, a particular favorite of Musical Director L. Thomas Vining.
