The Columbia Collegiate Chorale & New England Youth Ensemble perform their "Christmas Spectacular Concert" on December 1 at 4pm. Frederick Seventh-day Adventist Church has hosted this free annual concert with acclaimed guest artists for the Piedmont and Appalachian regions of Maryland every year. Invite your friends and family to enjoy this well-attended Christmas tradition with musicians and vocalists uniting in song and spirit. A free will offering will be taken. The Columbia Collegiate Chorale of Washington Adventist University was established in 1994 by its former director Dr. James Bingham. It has appeared in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, National Gallery of Art, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as in other leading concert halls and cathedrals internationally. The choir has received extraordinary acclaim for its recording of Louis Vierne’s Messe Solennelle in C minor. Of its recording, O Jesus Sweet: Music for a Christmas Night, which includes the extended work Dancing Day by John Rutter, the composer has written: “I could not wish for a finer interpretation of my piece.” The mission of the Columbia Collegiate Chorale is to represent the best of American culture and the finest of Christian values through the study and performance of the sacred music of the great masters. The New England Youth Ensemble (NEYE), founded in 1969 by Dr. Virginia-Gene Rittenhouse is one of the most internationally traveled Youth/Student Orchestras in America. In 1994 the NEYE became the resident orchestra of Washington Adventist University and has since continued to enjoy wide-spread critical acclaim. The NEYE mission is simple: to bring great music to a searching world that is performed, in the words of J.S. Bach, “to the Glory of God and the Refreshment of the Spirit."share
