CSO Gospel Christmas Saturday Dec. 6 Rings in Holiday Season
11/19/2014 4:21:18 PM

CSO Gospel Choir
The acclaimed CSO Gospel Choir joins forces with the CSO Spiritual Ensemble for the holidays to present Gospel Christmas: Unspeakable Gift, Saturday, December 6, 2014, 7:30pm at Ashley River Baptist Church, 1101 Savannah Highway, Charleston.

Providing the setting for story of Christ’s birth through music, the CSO Spiritual Ensemble opens the program with moving interpretations of sacred holiday music in the manner of the African-American Spiritual including Have You Heard About the Baby and Nowhere To Lay His Head. A Lowcountry household name, the CSO Gospel Choir brings real meaning to Charleston’s musical landscape performing down-home traditional spirituals and soulful gospel renditions including four new arrangements of Go Tell it On the Mountain, What Child is This? and A Christmas Wish.

The performance will again be conducted by internationally acclaimed conductor Dr. Rollo Dilworth, Associate Professor of Choral Music Education at Temple University, and features an orchestra of regional musicians for a rousing celebration of gospel favorites, moving spirituals and festive orchestral holiday arrangements.

“I am honored to return to Charleston and be part of this holiday tradition. Music and the holidays bring the joy of giving and love into our lives and is a wonderful way for families to be together,” said Dr. Dilworth.

“We are again honored to be hosted by Reverend Dave Patterson and the Ashley River Baptist Church congregation.

Their world-class sanctuary provides the perfect setting for telling the Christmas story through moving orchestral, spiritual, and gospel music,” said Lee Pringle, President and Founder of the two musical groups. The performance will also highlight several of the local groups’ talented vocalists.
