St. Francis Music Center String Orchestras present “Christmas Gloria!”

St. Francis Music Center proudly presents the St. Francis Preparatory, Concert, and Chamber Orchestras in a Christmas Concert, “Christmas Gloria!” on Friday, December 16 at 7 p.m. in Sacred Heart Chapel.

Everyone is invited to this evening of festive music featuring the three string orchestras of St. Francis Music Center. These orchestras involve nearly 50 string players, from grade school ages through adults, from throughout our central Minnesota area. Also joining the orchestras for the concert are mentors from the Heartland Symphony Orchestra.

The program will include beautiful music of the season including well known Christmas carols, A Celtic Christmas Fantasy, “Glorias” by Saint-Saens and Vivaldi, and Irving Berlin's well-known White Christmas. Several student soloists will be featured including a special guest artist, flutist Isaac Olson, performing the haunting theme from the motion picture The Mission, music by Ennio Morricone.

Directing both groups will be Bobbi French, director of the strings program and instructor at St. Francis Music Center.

The public is invited to attend this free concert and hear joyous string music in a beautiful setting.
