This years show features an expanded roster and a bit more structure, edging further in the direction of a formal concert under the new direction of David Hodel. Were doing some more traditional carols and some more contemporary material, says Lutheran Chorale president Linda Blandin -- and theres some interesting stuff on the menu, such as one piece that turns a 1,500-year-old monastic chant into a canon and blends it with a traditional African song. Its not as much a sing-in as it has been, Blandin notes, but Im sure people will still be singing along.
Worst case, you can always chime in on Hallelujah. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 South Allison Parkway; tickets are $15, $12 for seniors and $8 for students. To find out more, visit www.lakewood.org/hca or call 303-987-7845.
