Christmas music and a choral reading of Dylan Thomas’ story, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” will be featured at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. The concert will feature St. Mark’s choir and several instrumentalists.
“A Child’s Christmas in Wales” was written by Thomas in the late 1940s and produced as a radio drama for the BBC in 1952, a year before Thomas’ death. The story was adapted by Dan Bukvich and Roger Wallins for a reading by the Moscow Community Theatre. It includes percussion sound effects.
The concert also includes: “The Three Kings” by Peter Cornelius, “Glory to God in the Highest” by Johann Vierdanck, “Torches,” a Galacian carol by John Joubert, and “The Savior of the World is Born” by Gustav Holst. The program will conclude with a singing of traditional carols by the choir and audience.
St. Mark’s choir is directed by Linda Wharton and accompanied by organist Mary Fellman. Tickets are available at the door; general admission is $12 with discounts for students, seniors and families.
