O Come, O Come, Emmanuel on Now Is the Time

auroraborealisIt’s expectation, light, and looking up on Now is the Time, Sunday, December 23rd at 10 pm. Welcher’s Zion for band refers to what is now the national park in Utah—the haven for Mormons in the 19th century—and the old American hymn tune. Skyriding, from Brouwer’s Light CD, is “a water ride in a celestial amusement park,” and Zaimont’s Chroma depicts the aurora borealis.

Daron Hagen and Carson Cooman’s choral music fit the show for the turn from Advent into Christmas, ending with Hagen’s original and exciting Hosanna.
