Christmas is all about sharing. We have invited our community of choirs from throughout the greater San Antonio area to join us to perform the world premiere of Stacey Gibbs Christmas spiritual medley which includes; I can tell the world, Nowhere to Lay His Head, and Pretty Little Baby. Stacey V. Gibbs is a prolific and highly sought-after composer-arranger. Best known for arrangements of spirituals, he is highly acclaimed for his ability to infuse new energy into familiar works without sacrificing their authenticity or power. Maestro Gibbs’ spirituals have been performed by such diverse ensembles as the United States Air Force Sergeants, The St. Olaf Choir, and the Stellenbosch Choir of Africa among countless others internationally.
We will also share several other pieces with brass choir including CHRISTMAS JOY by Stephen Chatman, Daniel Pinkham’s, CHRISTMAS CANTATA, and JOY, a weaving together of Beethoven’s stunning ODE TO JOY and Handel’s JOY TO THE WORLD. The subtle tenderness of Christmas will be expressed through music from the Baltics and around the globe.
We are inviting local non-profit groups to the Tobin Center for this concert to share the good news on how their love is expressed throughout our greater community.
