Composer series #2: DAN FORREST & “The Huron Carol”Fans of BCAS will be familiar with our second featured composer for our upcoming concert: Dan Forrest! Forrest’s musical career began at age 8 in Breesport, New York, where he began piano lessons with his elementary music teacher. He graduated from Bob Jones University with a Bachelors and Masters in Music, and the University of Kansas with a Doctorate in composition. In addition to choral music, Forrest has composed for orchestra, instrumentalists, and wind band. Forrest’s music is a perennial favorite of BCAS for its lush harmonies and soaring piano accompaniment. Forrest was inspired to arrange “The Huron Carol” after a visit to Canada. The carol is a re-telling of the Christmas story from around 1643, originally by a French missionary named Jean de Brébeuf. Set to a French Canadian tune, the original Carol was written in the Wendot (Huron) language, telling the story of Jesus’ birth using imagery that would have been familiar to the Wendot tribes.

Composer series #1: ELAINE HAGENBERG and “Sussex Carol.” “Elaine Hagenberg’s music ‘soars with eloquence and ingenuity’ (ACDA Choral Journal). Her award-winning compositions are performed worldwide and frequently featured at American Choral Directors Association conferences, All-State festivals, Carnegie Hall, and other distinguished international concert halls from Australia to South America and throughout Europe.In addition to composing full-time, Elaine actively engages in bringing her music to life as the guest artist and featured clinician for professional conferences and festivals both in the U.S. and abroad as a composer, conductor, and accompanist of her work.” (ElaineHagenberg.com)Our upcoming December 2nd & 4th concerts will feature Hagenberg’s arrangement of the traditional English carol, “Sussex Carol.” It is a high-energy piece with a lilting piano part, and we know you will enjoy hearing it as much as we have enjoyed rehearsing it! Check out our Story to hear a clip, and go to our website to to purchase tickets for “Angels Sing!” ... See MoreSee Less
