Year ten for Cantata!!
Over the past 9 years, the Bethany Lutheran Brethren Church out of Morrin has sponsored a Christmas Cantata that has performed in Morrin and in a variety of churches in Drumheller. The Cantata choir has been made up of members of the Drumheller and Morrin communities and directed by Becky Neuman.
This year will be the tenth year, and again, Becky is inviting anyone, above the age of 12, to come and sing with the choir. Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 at the Bethany Lutheran Brethren Church in Morrin. There are a number of members that come from Drumheller, so car pooling is always an option.
This year’s Cantata is titled “What Child is This?” by Joel Raney. Instead of telling the story that leads up to the birth of Christ, it begins with the birth, and explores who this infant Jesus is and what he represents for all of us. The music is a mixture of traditional and new music in a variety of styles including classical, spiritual, and calypso. The narration combines story telling and poetry. Together, the Cantata is joyful, inspirational, and bold.
Rehearsals for the Cantata begin on Monday, September 26 at the Lutheran Church in Morrin. They will continue every Monday except for Thanksgiving Monday and the last Monday in November. Performances will be held on December 16 at the Bethany Lutheran Church in Morrin, and December 17 and 18 at the Kaleidoscope Theatre.
Please come out and join us, and make our tenth year the best yet.
