For the first time, the WSO will perform with a 60-person choir made up of singers from the Bruton Parish choirs (under the direction of Rebecca Davy) and the Williamsburg Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir (under the direction of Christopher Bechtler). We will also be featuring an exciting young guest soloist, eleven-year-old Emmanuel Atiyeh. Janna Hymes,the Symphony's music director, will conduct the concert.
One of the Orchestra's holiday traditions is auctioning off the opportunity to conduct the piece “Sleigh Ride” during the concerts. Two of this year's lucky winners are Mary Jane Amrein and James Koehn, who will be conducting the piece in the Saturday concerts. If you want to give someone the magical gift of conducting "Sleigh Ride" and a professional orchestra, two opportunities are still open for the Sunday concerts! Contact the WSO office for more information at (757) 229-9857.
This year’s concerts are generously sponsored by Liz Moore and Associates and Two Friends of Music. Thank you!
