Year ten for Can­tata!!

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Sub­mit­ted The Drumheller M,il

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.
