Mark your calendar for this Sunday, December 19th, when the Central Presbyterian Church Choir will present A Thrill of Hope by Joel Raney for our annual Christmas Cantata. “A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices!” Nothing captures the awe and wonder of Christmas better than that single phrase from John Dwight’s “O Holy Night,” and it serves as the cornerstone of this Christmas musical. A Thrill of Hope looks at the birth of Christ from four distinct vantage points – celebrating the Hope he brought, the Love he showed, the Peace he promised, and the Joy of Emmanuel, God with us, forevermore! This Arrangement is filled with an array of familiar carols and hymns, all arranged in a variety of moods and musical styles to create a riveting re-telling of the Christmas story! Don’t miss this performance as your choir has been working exceptionally hard to present this message in song and liturgy for the Christmas season!
