The Carolina Concert Choir will present a Special Christmas season concert featuring Dan Forrest's composition entitled LUX (Light): The Dawn from On High. As Dan Forrest has written "... The title invokes the dual meaning of the text of the first movement, where the light of dawn gradually ascends into the sky, yet the Light of the world descends from the sky - a "Dawn from on High". The work in five movements traces a journey through time - from the ancient to today ("even after all this time"), and then back again; or from another perspective, from a day's dawn, through the sun's high point in the sky, and then to the setting of the sun on the horizon at the end of day. The music of LUX, written in 2018, was inspired thematically and spiritually by these profound texts; visually by the light in the Reims Cathedral in France and at the Poulnabrone Dolmen in Ireland; and musically by a variety of musical sources from ancient chant to modern minimalist composers...".
The concert will also include an audience sing-along of six carols, A Winter Triptych by James Adler, Welcome, Holy Child by Raymond Haan, and two pieces by Mack Wilberg entitled Away In a Manger and The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy (2006). The 50-member auditioned Carolina Concert Choir conducted by Dr. Michael Lancaster along with a nine-piece orchestra of accomplished regional musicians is proud to present these works
