The Church of the Messiah is very excited to welcome the Boston String Quartet, who will present the program “Christmas in Paris,” on Wednesday, December 5th, at 7:00pm. The concert will take place at the Church of the Messiah, 22 Church Street, Woods Hole. The program will include Haunting French carols, all new stories, and a multimedia adventure through “la ville lumiere” the City of Lights.
With over 40 showings of their last two series, “Christmas in Buenos Aires” and “A Celtic Christmas Extravaganza”, the Quartet will be exploring Parisian Life by presenting music from hit movies such as Scorsese’s “Hugo” and the French award winning “The Illusionist”, music from the beloved Edith Piaf, and traditional French carols. NEW in 2012 will be soaring videos of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre to accompany the music.
The Boston String Quartet is one of very few string ensembles forging new territory in the string world by writing all original music and arrangements. Contemporaries and collaborators with the Boston String Quartet include ensembles such as the GRAMMY Winning Turtle Island and Kronos Quartets, and string celebrities such as Mark O’ Connor and Edgar Meyer. “By writing original compositions for string quartet, we are paving a way for our traditional instruments in a world of contemporary music” says cellist, Christina Stripling.
Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $20 at the door. Please visit our website: www.churchofthemessiahwoodshole.org or call us (508) 548-2145, for more information.
