Please join the Stonehill Choir for their special Christmas cantata "Silence and the Sound". Admission is free! This year's performance will also feature the Stonehill SDA Church Children's Chorus. The Silence and the Sound is a Cantata for Christmas by Heather Sorenson. This is more than a re-telling of the nativity. This work explores both the mystery and the majesty of Christ's birth. Filled with original sacred songs and beloved carols, this innovative cantata is not only a beautiful concert moment, but it is a true worship experience. The richness of both contemporary and traditional elements, along with thoughtful narrations, make this work an excellent choice for blended worship styles, and the stunning orchestrations complete the experience.
