Well, our Christmas performing season has come to a close, but there's plenty more music to come after the new year.
We began with our traditional Christmas concert at Epiphany. Some Sacred Music, a few Christmas carols, and a wonderfully receptive audience made for a very enjoyable evening. Unfortunately our performance at Westminster had to be cancelled due to inclement weather, but we are hoping to provide a make-up concert sometime this year. See the "Sights" tab for pictures.
We were also honored to be asked to perform at the Navy's Holiday party singing a selection of Christmas Carols for those hard working servicemen and civilians. Despite (or perhaps because of) the security checks and seeming miles of corridors, the concert was a joy to perform. Again, check for pics.
Our final Christmas celebration offered Handel's Messiah performed with the Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra, first at Epiphany Lutheran Church and then again at Good Shephard Lutheran Church. It was arguably the most moving performance we have had since the Celebration Singers began almost four years ago.
Check for pictures from the events under the "Sights" tab and you can see and hear the concert if you follow the YouTube link below. Enjoy.
We hope you all had a joyous holiday season and are looking forward to a blessed and happy New Year.
As our final offering last season, we presented our
Singers' Choice Concert
June 14th at Epiphany Lutheran Church
Each year our members suggest their favorite music to our Creative Director, Terry Stackley. As you might expect with a choir as diverse as ours, so too would be our music. The selections that evening spanned the musical spectum from Sacred, Pop, Doo-Wap, Patriotic, and Country to just plain fun. We hope there was something you loved but we are confident you enjoyed all you heard. Visit the "Sights" page for pictures of this wonderful evening.
And so our 2012-2013 season has come to a rousing finish. It has been a great year of growth for the Celebration Singers - in attendence, our charitable donations, and our musical repertoir. We are looking forward to next year. Terry Stackley has some amazing music ready for us.

After basking in the glorious music of Rutter's "Requiem," on May 7th, 2013 the Celebration Singers expanded our repertoir of his work and offered an entire evening of John Rutter's Music. These selections showed the true diversity of his work and included original pieces such as "Let's Begin Again" and "Home is a Special Kind of Feeling" as well as arrangements that highlighted his unique style. These included "A Gaelic Blessing", "Amazing Grace" and "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" The concert also included two of our favorite selections from "Requiem".
Our thanks to all who attended and we hope to see you all on June 14 for our Singers' Choice Concert.
On Friday, March 1, 2012, the Celebration Singers presented “An Evening of John Rutter” featuring his contemporary work, REQUIEM, with guest soloist and 7 piece ensemble. The concert was presented to a packed house at Epiphany Lutheran Church in Dale City, VA. Not only did our members thoroughly enjoy performing the piece, but the audience seemed to as well, providing a standing ovation following the work.
As always, this concert was free to the public.
Donations for supported charities and food for ACTS were gratefully accepted. For more information explore our website, CelebrationSingersVA.org or call 703-583-4422.
