Young Men’s Ensemble In-Person Concert on Wednesday, December 8

ENSEMBLE: Young Men’s Ensemble

Ragazzi Boys Chorus’ Young Men’s Ensemble makes its triumphant return to the stage with its first in-person solo ensemble concert in almost two years. Featuring vaccinated singers from Ragazzi’s Young Men’s Ensemble in person, this holiday concert will include treasured yuletide gems and contemporary festive pieces to celebrate the season. Led by Young Men’s Ensemble director Travis Rogers and assistant director Nancy Whitecar,  this concert will be performed at 8pm PST Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Redwood City. For the in-person concert, audience capacity is limited to 100, with social distancing enforced. All audience members are required to wear a mask, and all performers, staff, volunteers, and audience members must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination before entering the concert space. Audience members will also need to show an ID that matches their COVID-19 vaccination card. Purchase tickets ($30) by filling out the form below. Advance ticket purchase is required; tickets will not be available at the door.

During this thrilling performance, Young Men’s Ensemble (YME) will perform Michael John Trotta’s mesmerizing arrangement of the 18th century hymn Veni, Veni Emmanuel, Kim Andre Arnesen’s beautifully expressive Cradle Hymn with words from Isaac Watts’ poem, Morten Lauridsen’s emotive a cappella arrangement O Magnum Mysterium, and David Conte’s driving and rhythmic a cappella arrangement of the Traditional French Burgundian Carol Pat-a-Pan. YME will contrast Stephen Caracciolo’s gorgeous a cappella arrangement of O Tannenbaum (composed by Melchior Franck) with Carl J. Nygard’s delightful arrangement Oh! Christmas Tree???, a parody of the traditional German carol. YME will also sing a rollicking rendition of Jingle Bells by James Pierpont, arranged by Philip Lawson, and the joyous, traditional Kenyan song Wana Baraka, arranged by Shawn Kirchner.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to performance.
