Share

The Tidewater Singers will present an a cappella concert featuring Francis Poulenc’s “Four Motets for Christmastime” and other seasonal songs from the Renaissance through the 21 st century on Friday, December 14 at 7:30 pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Centreville; on Saturday, December 15 at 7:30 pm at Trinity Cathedral in Easton; and on Sunday, December 16 at 4:00 pm at Christ Episcopal Church in Cambridge.

Under the direction of William Thomas, The Tidewater Singers are a select group of professional and amateur singers founded in 2001. The goal is to bring varied and exciting quality choral music to the Eastern Shore.

Commenting on the concert, Thomas said, “The lyric melodies of the Poulenc Motets will delight our audiences, as will the span of the additional music.” The Tidewater Singers are renowned throughout the mid shore area for their a cappella work.

Now in his eleventh season as artistic director of the Tidewater Singers, Thomas is associate professor of music at Chesapeake College. Previously he directed the choirs at Easton High School and at Christ Church (Episcopal) in St. Michaels.
