The Marco Island Community Chorus will present their third annual musical Christmas Cantata, “Morning Star” on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 3:00 PM at the San Marco Catholic Church. The church is located at 851 San Marco Road, Marco Island.
“Morning Star” was written by Lloyd Larson and will be conducted by Kathleen Osborne Gerdes, PhD. Kathleen Osborne Gerdes brings to the Marco Island Community Chorus an extensive musical background with advanced degrees in Music Education, Voice, Choral Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Northern Iowa, University of Iowa and Pennsylvania State University.
The Marco Island Community Chorus has now grown from two Marco Island church choirs to over 60 faithful singers from Marco Island, Naples and the surrounding area. The 60-member chorus of male and female voices will be joined by members of the Naples Symphony Youth Orchestra, piano/organ accompanists Kelly Utterback and Judy Wright, to present an Advent Season celebration of the Everlasting Light of Christmas.
The performance of this cantata will be a one-of-a-kind on Marco Island!
