Webster University's "Gift to the City" Concert
The Webster University Choirs and Chamber Orchestra presents the third annual “Gift to the City” Concert held in one of St. Louis’ grand spaces, the Christ Church Cathedral. Quiet and reflective music will celebrate the peace and joy of the season. The concert features the talents of students and faculty of Webster University, including the Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, Choral Society under the direction of Trent Patterson, director of Choral Studies; and the Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Paul Davis, director of instrumental studies and conductor of the Webster Symphony Orchestra.
"We intend this concert to be a peaceful respite from the tugs of the holiday season. As part of our continuing series of concerts in great spaces around town, this particular event has quickly become a favorite of students, faculty, and the wider community. We continue this year with two performances in order to accommodate all who wish to attend. A special feature this December is three different organists playing various carol settings on the magnificent pipe organ at Christ Church Cathedral. We also will include this year a ceremonial singing of 'White Christmas'." ~Jeffrey Carter, Chair, Department of Music
Additional performers: Stephen Eros, student organist; William "Pat" Partridge, Cathedral Organist and adjunct faculty member; Earl Naylor, organist and adjunct faculty member; the Webster University jazz combo; Paula Bernhardt, flute and adjunct faculty member.
