The Girl Choir of South Florida presents “Holiday Reflections” at the
Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Throughout this program, we seek to explore both the joyful and bittersweet reflections of holiday traditions from around the world. As we begin our evening, all five of our ensembles will embark on a reflective journey with “Hashivenu”, a Hebrew piece that imparts a deep longing for the past. From there, we will travel around the world, from the Nordic “Joiku” to the Nigerian “Betelehemu”. The more wistful selections, Edward Elgar’s “The Snow” and Pinkzebra’s “Winter Dreams” portray the overarching themes of renewal and peace. To keep the energy flowing, each of our ensembles will perform professionally choreographed pieces such as “Ugly Christmas Sweater” and “Sparklejollytwinklejingley”. With the assistance of outstanding piano accompanists and instrumentalists, each tier of the choir will offer the audience a reflection of the hope and sublimity of the holiday season.
