BHS Holiday Concord set for Dec. 13

The Burroughs High School Performing Arts Department will present its Holiday Concord 2013, an evening of historical music performance, dining, drama and dancing for one night only at the Kerr McGee Center’s Pinnacles Room, Friday, Dec. 13.

Seating will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the performance at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale at Red Rock Books, 206 W. Ridgecrest Blvd.

The $40 price includes a gourmet meal prepared by Master Chef Rose Fusco as well as entertainment from the Renaissance period, 1450-1600, although a few works from later periods will sneak onto the program, as usual.

Composers included in the program include Orlando di Lasso, Michael Praetorius, Thomas Morley, Percy Aldridge Grainer and Anonymous.

Guests are encouraged to dress up in period costume and take advantage of the opportunity to dance the Washerwoman’s Bransle with fiddle accompaniment.

The queen and king of the Holiday Concord, Danielle Albert and Alex Tellez, as well as Instructor Mark Hatter, invite you to treat yourself to a lavish evening of food, music, dancing and fun.

Tickets are going fast, so trot down to Red Rock Books before this magical event sells out. For more info, call Mr. Hatter at 499-1800, ext. 4096 or e-mail him at mhatter@ssusd.org.
