The Chancel Choir of Epworth United Methodist Church will be joining countertenor Christopher Berg and several singing friends at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 16, in the sanctuary of Epworth for a Christopher Berg Christmas Concert. The concert is sponsored by the Music Ministry of Epworth. All are welcome to attend. A suggested donation of $15 at the door is requested. A dessert reception will follow the concert in Fellowship Hall.

The Epworth Chancel Choir will join Berg and friends singing Vivaldi’s "Gloria," one of the most famous of Vivaldi’s compositions. In this work, Vivaldi sets traditional texts of the Latin Mass into 12 movements with choral flair, baroque intimacy, surging duets and solos, and powerful fugues. "Gloria" will be presented during the first half of the concert.

During the second half, the audience will be treated to a medley of Christmas spirituals by Berg, and three duets featuring Christopher and soprano Andrea Davis. Other beautiful arrangements of Christmas classics will be performed. A carol sing-along with the audience and choir will also take place.

Epworth United Methodist Church is at 19285 Holland Glade Road off Route 1 north of Rehoboth Beach. For more information go to www.eumcrb.org or call the Epworth church office at 302-227-7743.
