National Chamber Ensemble Presents HAPPY HOLIDAYS:
On Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 PM the National Chamber Ensemble welcomes the Holiday Season withHappy Holidays! at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre. Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick joins NCE as Guest Host. An annual tradition, NCE’s holiday concert will delight with classical masterpieces and holiday favorites together in one fun program for all!
Guest soprano Rebecca Littig, who has sung leading roles at La Scala in Milan, the Vienna State Opera and London’s Covent Garden, will charm with music of Mozart. Undoubtedly the most well-known sacred piece from Mozart’s early years is the Exsultate Jubilate for soprano. Completed during one of the composer’s trips to Italy, this exuberant work was the creation of the 17-year-old Mozart — the piece is a miniature vocal concerto in three movements which concludes with a brilliant Alleuja — a favorite of sopranos, concertgoers, and worshipers the world over.
Twelve year old violinist Brandon Du, the 2016 winner of the National Chamber Ensemble Outstanding Young Artist Achievement Award will make his debut with NCE performing the music of Bruch and Sarasate. Don’t miss hearing this fantastic young musician.
A group of young musicians will also come together to perform a masterpiece by J.S Bach.
The program will feature music of Mozart, Bach, Schumann as well as holiday favorites such as Leroy Anderson’s Sleighride, a Hanukkah Fantasy, favorite carols and more. The concert concludes with a Carols Sing-Along to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Celebrate the season with NCE artists and special guests in this exciting program.
