ENTERTAINMENT

Oregon Symphony, with Guest Conductors Charles Floyd and Gary Hemenway, and the Northwest Community Gospel Choir
By The Skanner News

The Oregon Symphony, with Guest Conductors Charles Floyd and Gary Hemenway, and the Northwest Community Gospel Choir, will present Gospel Christmas at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 9 and 10 and at 4 p.m. Dec. 11 at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

For the past 18 seasons, Gospel Christmas concerts have been the Oregon Symphony’s most popular holiday performances. Some of this year’s selections include “Sacrifice of Praise,” “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” “Celebrate the King,” “Carol of the Bells,” and a rousing medley of Christmas worship songs.

The Northwest Community Gospel Choir features the very best of the local gospel talent from local and regional churches and music ministries. In addition to their first-rate choral work, the Northwest Community Gospel Choir features a number of talented soloists who take turns leading the group with stellar vocal interpretations of classic holiday songs.

Conductor, pianist, and composer Charles Floyd has been heard in concert with more than 500 orchestras since 1991—including every Oregon Symphony Gospel Christmas concert since our annual performances began in 1999. He is a regular conductor of the Boston Pops.

Tickets begin at $35 and can be purchased online at OrSymphony.org; in person at the Oregon Symphony Ticket Office located at 909 SW Washington St., in downtown Portland (M-Sat, 10 am-6 pm); by phone at (503) 228-1353 (M-Fri, 10 am-9 pm; Sat. 10 am-6pm); and at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall starting two hours before every performance.
