Music Makes the Season Bright! Celebrate the season with Huron Waves
Huron Waves aims to brighten your holidays with a special gift. Music Makes the Season Bright 2022 is a new music video launching Tuesday, December 20 at 7pm. “It’s now an exciting annual tradition to bring together some wonderful musicians to celebrate the season,” says Artistic Director, John Miller. “This is the third holiday video for Huron Waves.”
The 2022 video will feature many holiday favourites. Kicking off the Video with a short solo Psalm 98 is Terry McKenna who enjoys performing a wide range of musical styles on period and modern lutes. The Beard family from Wingham add What Child is This? and a Carol for a Christmas Tree to the repertoire with cellist Thomas, Emily on harp, Kaitlin on flute and Marg on the keyboard. A Salvation Army brass ensemble, Venabrass, perform seasonal songs Sleigh Ride and lead a sing-a-long to the holiday classics Joy to the World, Jingle Bells and Silent Night. Showcasing the Casavant Organ in the First Presbyterian Church in Seaforth, Christopher Dawes adds Sleepers Wake! (Wachet auf) and In dulci jubilo to the dazzling programme of seasonal music! Dawes will also accompany soprano Katy Clark on O Holy Night and Ms. Clark will also sing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah accompanied by Terry McKenna on guitar.
The videos are all professionally recorded and filmed by FauxPop Media of Goderich and funded in part by the Government of Ontario.
The video premiere is set for Tuesday, December 20th at 7pm. Everyone is invited to view the video from the link on the website at www.huronwavesmusicfestival.ca or on YouTube. Five local cable channels – Hay Communications, Hurontel, Tuckersmith Communications, Quadro Telecom and Wightman Telecom – will also present the video throughout the holiday season.
Catch the holiday spirit. Let the music make your season bright with Huron Waves.
