Joseph, A Chrismas Choral Story
Spectrum Voices, a well-known West-Island choir, will be performing “Joseph, A Choral Story”.
The 2-hour production recounts the Christmas nativity story from Joseph’s point of view. How does he feel when his beloved Mary reveals that she is ‘with child’, not from another human, but from God?
This choral story weaves together threads that resonate in contemporary life: loyalty, isolation, and ultimately our duty to cherish life.
Created by Margaret Forrest & John Halpin (John Abbott College’s Director General), Joseph will be performed by 6 soloists accompanied by a 15-voice choir with piano accompaniment.
The John Abbott College Foundation is holding a benefit evening at the November 16 presentation at Sainte Veronica’s Church in Dorval.
In addition to the show, ticket bearers will have the opportunity to meet the cast during cocktail following the performance.
