A Narrative Concert Commemorating the Story of the 1914 Christmas Truce

Join us Saturday, December 13, at 8pm as the Unicorn Singers and Broad Cove Chorale present All is Calm, All is Bright, a narrated concert celebrating the 100th anniversary of the World War I Christmas Truce. On Christmas Eve of 1914, soldiers serving in Flanders were dug into their opposing trenches within shouting distance of their enemies. Spontaneously, in intermittent stretches along the line, the German soldiers began to raise small lighted trees atop their trenches and sing Christmas carols. English soldiers responded by singing carols of their own. The event lasted all through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There were accounts of gifts exchanged and an impromptu soccer match.

Under the direction of Margo Euler of Hingham, the choruses will present musical selections highlighting the poignant and fleeting moments of the Truce which resonated for many and served as a powerful beacon of light and human kindness in an otherwise horrific conflict. Michael Theobald of Milton will deliver the narration and the audience is invited to sing the same carols soldiers exchanged 100 years ago.

The concert at St. Michaels is one of three All is Calm, All is Bright, concerts to be performed in the Boston/South Shore area this holiday season. Proceeds from the concerts will benefit the Wellspring Multiservice Center in Hull, MA which provides support and skills to people facing challenges to their financial, physical or emotional well-being in order to help them achieve independence and self-sufficiency. Click here for more information on Wellspring Multiservice Center.

For tickets to the All is Calm, All in Bright concerts in Hingham and Cohasset call Kathy Reardon at 781-749-0162 or e-mail her here.
