Continuo Arts’ annual “Christmas Time in the City” Holiday Concert Extravaganza takes place on December 13th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Westfield. A production by the Continuo Arts Foundation presented free of charge as a gift to the community features over 175 singers from Union, Morris and Essex Counties, soloists, the Continuo Arts Chamber Orchestra, free photos with Santa, our very own Elsa, audience sing-a-longs and special guest artists!
The Continuo Arts Choruses and a visit by Santa always have surprise vignettes in store for concert-goers with music in surround-sound and a prelude concert featuring the Rutgers Prep Chamber Orchestra. Children of all ages can look forward to an opportunity for picture taking with Santa after the performance! The individual and combined Continuo Arts Ensembles & Chamber Orchestra will present many perennial holiday favorites in addition to selections from Italian Composer Marco Frisina whose recent USA premiere was presented in collaboration with the Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus, the Crescent Choral Society and the Plainfield Symphony Orchestra.
