The Finger Lakes Camerata, a choral group based at Finger Lakes Community College, will give two community holiday concerts.
The first concert will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 28, at the Salvation Army, 110 Saltonstall St., Canandaigua. It will help the organization’s annual Red Kettle fundraising campaign.
The second concert will be held the following day, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29, at the First Congregational Church, 58 N. Main St., Canandaigua.
Both concerts are called “Words of Good Cheer,” and will feature secular and sacred music of the holidays. Selected works include “Silent Night,” “We Three Kings,” and “Susa Ninna,” among others. Both concerts will end with a holiday carols sing-a-long.
Anthony D’Agostino, music director in the Dansville Central School District, will serve as accompanist to Dennis Maxfield, director of the Camerata and adjunct music faculty member at FLCC.
Both concerts are free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted for the Red Kettle campaign at the Nov. 28 concert, and for the Dr. A. John Walker Music Award for FLCC music and music recording students at the Nov. 29 concert.
