A New Canaan Holiday Concert
The Holiday Concert for New Canaan is here!
“A Holiday Concert for New Canaan with Andrew Armstrong” is an hour-long program jointly produced by New Canaan Public Television (NCTV79) and New Canaan Chamber Music with additional production by Devon Chivvis.
The video features internationally acclaimed pianist Andrew Armstrong, who also serves as artistic director. Andy plays a repertoire ranging from classical music to traditional Christmas carols, joined by guest performers including the New Canaan High School Madrigal Ensemble and Bella Voce groups.
The New England Academy of Dance perform a selection from The Nutcracker Suite.
All of the music was recorded by Andrew Armstrong on December 1 at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in a program directed by Robert Doran.
The show premieres tonight (Christmas Eve) on Channel 79 in New Canaan but it is also available for viewing now:
The video is receiving high praise from town residents:
“Not sure I can put into words how amazing this is. It’s a work of art and in a very unique way brings our community together at a time when we can’t gather as we have for over 100 years.”
“What exquisite talent and what a beautiful gift to everyone in New Canaan.”
“Enthralling, beautifully produced and very touching.”
From all of us at #LiveNewCanaan, we wish you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season.
Enjoy the video!
