O Holy Night – A Glorious Christmas Concert!


It’s almost that time of the year: Christmas! On Friday, December 1st at 7:30 pm, we will be hosting a faith-stirring night of musical worship, called “O Holy Night” at Shepherd’s Grove! The concert will include performances by our world-renowned Hour of Power Choir and Orchestra, the Voices of Hope Children’s Choir, and a selection of talented guest soloists.

The Hour of Power Choir is conducted by Dr. Irene Messoloras, a renowned vocal music conductor and passionate educator from New York. After receiving her doctorate in choral conducting, she has conducted multiple prestigious and internationally acclaimed ensembles.

We are blessed to have Marc Riley as the director of our Hour of Power Orchestra. This award winning musical artist excels as a conductor, orchestrator and arranger, and earned his Ph.D. in Musical Composition.

Sarah Grandpre is an accomplished vocalist and conductor of the Voices of Hope Children’s Choir. Sarah runs a successful private studio in Orange County and is continually involved in a growing list of professional singing engagements.

Our talented guest soloists include Kelly McGrath, Caity Peters, Todd Strange, Maiya Sykes and Courtney Taylor. Kelly McGrath is a country-americana singer from Tennessee, now established in LA as an independent artist. Her music is featured in several films and music critics call her “one of the best vocalists working today.” Caity Peters is a vocalist out of Long Beach, CA. She has traveled to several nations, teaching music to children around the world. Caity recently performed on “The Voice,” and had all four judges competing fiercely to get her on their team.

Todd Strange is a brilliant tenor, and is a member of the Los Angeles Master Chorale and the Los Angeles Opera. He has been featured in multiple shows and movies around the country. Maiya Sykes is a soloist from Southern California. She has spent several years touring as a backup vocalist for Macy Gray, and in 2014 she was a contestant on “The Voice.” Courtney Taylor is a soprano for the Los Angeles Master Chorale and a frequent guest singer with the Hour of Power.

    I remember participating in a Christmas Concert and sing -along that was held in . St Ignatius Roman Catholic Church in Chicago Illinois in 1.985 . I was a member of a small choral group called the Contemporary Music Ensemble . And there were other choral groups also . The Spanish Choir and the Children’s Choir. Here is how the concert was performed . According to a tape that I have . The Children’s Choir did a medley and when they finished. My friend Jill Goldsmith introduced the individual soloists . First to perform was Joe Flynt who sang I wonder as I wander . And then I performed Silver Bells .After my solo . The Spanish Choir performed their medley with some background percussion by some CME members . The next solo performer was Kathie Goldsmith who sang Christmas Is . And than Karen Pouliot sang her delightful song which was titled Nuthing for Christmas . The Children’s Choir did their second medley . Sheila Kerwin sang Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and then Walter Kowalczyk performed ‘Twas the Night before Christmas with some cute little sound effects . Finally it was our turn to perform . The first song was Carol of the Bells and the second wasGesu Bambino . And the final solo performer was Mario Rochet who sang O Holy Night wth verses in English and Spanish . Everyone in the congregation gave him a standing ovation .And then came the sing -a- long segment with familiar carols like Joy to the World and many more .And then came thanks for all the participants with gratitude for a job well done .And the final song was A Christmas Carol by Michael Joncas
