Vanguard Chorale – Sounds of the Season
When: November 29, 2017, 07:30 PM - 09:15 PM
Where: Pool Room Fair Lane–The Home of Clara and Henry Ford
On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., please join the Fair Lane Music Guild for an evening of holiday music presented by Vanguard Chorale, directed by G. Kevin Dewey. The select ensemble of 24 singers from Vanguard Voices will be presenting the U.S. premiere of Wassail! Carols of Comfort and Joy by British composer Alexander L'Estrange. This is a cantata of ancient and modern, sacred and secular English carols, accompanied by a small Renaissance instrumental ensemble. Vanguard Chorale will also be giving the world premiere of The Garden of Love by Chris Cooley, and will lead the audience in an entertaining holiday singalong! The concert is generously sponsored by the University of Michigan Credit Union and the dessert table is sponsored by the Drusilla Farwell Foundation. The season poster is sponsored by Ms. Cecilia Benner.
The Guild’s weeknight concerts continue with its popular format of café seating (which gives us the opportunity to offer dessert concerts). Doors will open and service will begin one half hour prior to the concerts.
All Fair Lane Music Guild concerts are held at Fair Lane–The Home of Clara and Henry Ford, on the campus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, located at 4901 Evergreen Road. (Fair Lane–The Home of Clara and Henry Ford is currently closed for renovations, but thanks to the generosity of the Historic Ford Estates and the University of Michigan-Dearborn, the Guild is being allowed to use the Pool Room for these concerts.) Tickets are $15/person, $14 for senior citizens and $9 for students. (Cash or check.) Free lighted parking. Doors open at 7 p.m. For more information about season tickets or individual concert ticket sales, please call the Fair Lane Music Guild at (313) 593-5330, or go to http://flmg.umd.umich.edu/
