WomenSing Winter Reflections Concert at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Pleasant Hill Dec 12th


WomenSing Winter Reflections Concert:

Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church
1601 Mary Dr, Pleasant Hill
Wednesday, December 12th, 2018
8:00pm | $28

In this concert, not only will we sing songs celebrating Christmas, but also songs that inspire us to look deep into our souls and ponder life. Join WomenSing in an exploration of winter wisdom from sacred and secular traditions found in an ancient Greek Orthodox hymn, an Aboriginal songline, a soft Jewish Shabbat eve tune, a contemporary interpretation of early Chinese philosophy from the I Ching (noting encouragingly that even in the darkness there is light because “when the sun goes, the moon comes”), and a unique rendition of “In the Bleak Midwinter”, by American composer Frances McCollin, whose blindness in early childhood caused her to see colors when hearing music.
