Chancel Choir & Friends present Ramírez’s Navidad Nuestra
December 8, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Celebrate the Season with special music at First United Methodist Church of Boulder! Join us for Navidad Nuestra by Ariel Ramírez, performed by the Chancel Choir and Friends with instrumental ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Gerald Holbrook, Director of Music.
Argentine composer, pianist, and conductor Ariel Ramírez (1921-2010) was a leader in promoting Argentine folk music. He composed more than 300 works throughout his long life, and millions of albums of his music were sold world-wide. Navidad Nuestra (Our Nativity) was composed for a native tableau (criollo retable) where the mystery of the incarnation is presented in a popular manner, in the spirit of simple people with great tenderness. The piece is scored for chorus, percussion, harpsichord, and guitar.
Navidad Nuestra will be performed on Sunday, December 8, during the 10:30 AM Worship Service. There is no admission charge. Please come, and invite your friends!
Absolutely EVERYONE is welcome! Since 1997, FUMC Boulder has been a Reconciling Congregation, fully welcoming of LGBTQ people and their loved ones.
