Celebrate the Season with The Celebration Singers @ St. Michael's Church
Dec 6 @ 8:00 pm
Celebrate the Season with The Celebration Singers @ St. Michael's Church | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

For 81 years The Celebration Singers have been entertaining the greater Union County community and audiences across the globe during international tours. Join them on December 6 and 7, 2019 at 8 PM for a winter concert celebrating the songs of the season.

Comprised of over 100 singers ranging in age from 9-90, this community choir’s commitment to artistic excellence and its engaging and dynamic style provides its diverse singers and audiences with a compelling musical experience. Over the years, the choir membership has included families of all generations. Several current members of the Adult Choir were previous Children’s Choir members and singers in the Youth Choirs include children of Adult singers. It’s a multi-generational community, which enhances the breadth of genres and cultures from which they draw upon in their programs.

“It’s a unique opportunity to direct a group of singers ranging in age and ability who all come together once a week for two hours dedicated to creating beautiful music. For some, it’s the only time in their busy lives when they can express themselves through art – it’s a beautiful and truly meaningful opportunity.” Said Joe Elefante, Artistic Director of The Celebration Singers.

Tickets for their winter concert “Let the Light Shine” are $20 for adults and $15 for children and seniors. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.celebration-singers.org or at the box office located at St. Michael’s Church located at 40 Alden Street, Cranford, NJ 07016.

For more information, follow them at www.facebook.com/CelebrationSingers or contact them at celebrationsingersnewjersey@gmail.com or 908-552-4656.

Funding for the Celebration Singers is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council for the Arts, Department of State, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
