Cantemus Women’s Choir will present “Gloria!” on Sunday December 15th at 7 p.m. at State Street United Methodist Church, in Bristol, VA.

The concert will feature Antonio Vivaldi’s famous “Gloria,” voiced for women’s choir, as well as familiar carols, such as “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “What Child is This,” “The Sussex Carol,” and “Veni Emmanuel..” The concert will not only mark the regional premier of the Gloria, as set for women’s voices, but it will also mark the first Bristol concert for Cantemus.

Cantemus is conducted by Kingsport resident Patricia Denmark, who founded the choir during the summer of 2014 at the suggestion of Bristol resident and Mountain Empire Children’s Choral Academy Artistic Director Jane Morison.  Denmark also serves the award winning Dobyns-Bennett High School Chorus as Assistant Choir Director and is in her 19th year serving as Music Director for St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Kingsport.

For this concert Cantemus will be joined by an orchestra and accompanist Bryan Underwood. Bryan currently leads the Music & Worship Ministries at State Street United Methodist Church in Bristol, VA and is also the accompanist for Appalachian Men’s Ensemble, Voices of the Mountains, and Emory & Henry College. Cantemus is pleased to have Bryan join as accompanist while our regular accompanist, Erin Elizabeth Raines, is on a leave of absence.

Now in its 6th season, Cantemus boasts a membership of more than 30 singers of all ages that travel from all over the Tri-Cities to sing in the choir.  Rehearsals take place at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, Kingsport, TN on Tuesday evenings.   “For several hours each week our choir ladies are able to cast off the burdens and worries of everyday life, become connected to one another, and make glorious, soul-filling music together.  We hope that the public performance of our music is not just entertaining, but also inspiring and soul-filling for our audience,” Denmark said.

Auditions for the spring semester will be held on Tuesday, January 28th, from 6:00-9:00 pm, and the spring concert, “Sun, Moon, and Stars” will be held on Sunday May 6th,  at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Johnson City.
