Skylark’s A Christmas Carol Comes to Weston December 16

For many of us, attending a performance of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a family tradition every holiday season. And no, I don’t mean the Will Farrell “Spirited” version. This year, on December 16 at 7 pm (there is a pre-concert talk at 6:15pm) Weston’s First Parish Church will host Skylark, a premier vocal ensemble of leading American vocal soloists, chamber musicians, and music educators who will present A Christmas Carol adapted for storyteller and choir.

In their signature Christmas storytelling concert, Skylark again partners with master storyteller Sarah Walker to share the spellbinding musical interpretation of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens  Working from the original text abridged by Artistic Director Matthew Guard, Composer Benedict Sheehan has created a ground-breaking concert-length story score that weaves familiar Christmas carols into the fabric of the Dickens story. Bringing timeless carols of the season together with the beloved characters of Charles Dickens creates an unforgettable new version of a Christmas classic.

The run time of the concert is around 70 minutes, with no intermission. For tickets, please click this link. First Parish Church is located at 349 Boson Post Road.
