Christmas
Song & Story

Serenata Choir and St. Paul's United Church Choir
Collaborated Once Again 
to Celebrate the Giving Season
With a Musical Service to Benefit Guesthouse Shelter             

On Sunday December 8th, 2019 at 7:30pm,
A traditional Christmastime presentation
of Lessons and Carols
took place at St. Paul’s United Church in Midland.


There is no admission fee for this event. 
Instead, free will offerings are accepted
with all proceeds going to benefit Midland's Guesthouse Shelter.

 

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship that is traditionally followed at Christmastime to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the Prophetic Books and the Gospels.
Readings are interspersed with the singing of
Christmas carols, hymns and choir music.

 

The Guesthouse Shelter started as the "Midland Out of the Cold", and operated during the winter season. In 2012 it became a year-round operation, and in 2013,
Out of the Cold changed its name to The Guesthouse Shelter. At the start of 2014, after 10 years of volunteer support, The Guesthouse Shelter began receiving government funding to help support the operations. By the summer of 2016, relocation was planned to a safe, sustainable, accessible facility
 at the current Elizabeth Street location. 

 

Over the years, Serenata Choir's collaborative
Christmastime presentation of
Nine Lessons and Carols 
has raised approximately $15,000
to benefit Midland's Guesthouse Shelter.


 

 

2018 Saw
A New Direction

Serenata Choir was thrilled to launch its 31st season with
Ms. Victoria Warwick as its new Music Director 

With degrees in Education, Music Performance and Collaborative Piano, and years of experience as
National Director of Conservatory Canada -- Midland native, Victoria Warwick brings a wealth
of experience and knowledge to her new position.

 

“Although I have had the privilege of conducting many choirs over the years, until now I have never had the honour of conducting a community choir,” says Warwick. “I look ahead with much anticipation to the journey Serenata and I will take together, with a fresh outlook
and keen enthusiasm for making music!”

 

Ms. Warwick is an advocate of music collaboration, which exemplifies Serenata Choir’s revitalized spirit under her direction. Anticipating that the choir will soon be forging alliances with the many accomplished groups of Midland and area, she says:
“There is a tremendous wealth of musical talent in this area...
and everyone benefits from these collaborations - audience and participants alike.”
She adds, “I am so happy to be back home and to be part of it!”

 

Serenata Choir’s new direction also includes a new rehearsal time,
which will provide a fresh opportunity for amateur voices to share in the joyful experience of song.

Weekly practices are now on Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 pm 
at Calvary Baptist Church in Midland.

Of course, distinguished pianist, church music director and long-time Huronia resident, Mr. Bob Bruer,
will continue to accompany Serenata Choir as it prepares for this season's performances.
