The Calmus Ensemble will present “Christmas Carols of the World” Sunday, Dec. 3, at 4 p.m., at St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ, 2129 Commonwealth Ave., as part of the Schubert Club’s Music in the Park Series. A pre-concert talk with the artists will begin at 3 p.m.
One of Germany’s most successful vocal groups, Calmus has been awarded prizes in numerous international competitions, including the prestigious Concert Artists Guild Competition. Music in the Park Series brings the a cappella quintet to St. Paul with a program of carols from around the world, from 16th-century Italian madrigals to traditional carols of France, Germany, Sweden and England, to popular American holiday songs.
Part of their work is devoted to encouraging the up-and-coming generation, so teaching and workshops are part of their regular schedule. They will be visiting both St. Anthony Park Elementary School and St. Anthony Park Home, Dec. 4 as part of their Music in the Park residency.
