Five members of the Fenn Treble Chorus have been invited to sing with the Concord Orchestra at its holiday concert on Sunday, December 8th. Composer Howard Blake, who in 1991 was commissioned to write a piano concerto for the birthday of Diana, Princess of Wales, is best known for his film score, The Snowman. In addition to his orchestral score, Blake composed the music and lyrics for the song “Walking in the Air,” which will be sung by Trebles members Charlie Clark, Henry Patton, Oliver Neale, William Skelly, and Andre Vlahakis.
The 35-member Fenn Treble Chorus, directed by Mike Salvatore, has performed at the Boston Athenaeum, York Minster Cathedral, Castle Howard, the Boston Garden, and Fenway Park. The Concord Orchestra, conducted by Richard Pittman, will present its family holiday concert at the Performing Arts Center at 51 Walden Street in Concord. Emmy-award winning arts and entertainment critic Joyce Kulhawik will narrate The Snowman, which began life as a children’s picture book by English author Raymond Briggs in 1978.
