Madison Cultural Arts is proud to present its 19th annual Winter Concert - A Holiday Musical Celebration on Saturday, December 10th, 2016 at 4pm. at the First Congregational Church in Madison. We are excited to tell you about this year’s expanded concert. For only the third time, two renowned choirs of Trinity Church on the Green, New Haven – the Trinity Boys Choir and the Trinity Girls Choir – will perform.
There will be a an encore holiday appearance by Choate Rosemary Hall’s Chamber Orchestra and their Jazz Ensemble. The Constitution Brass Quintet will perform a Renaissance prelude and postlude to the concert.
Music selections will range from the choirs’ repertoire of traditional Christmas carols, music from Hanukkah and popular holiday songs, to the Chamber Orchestra’s rendition of Corelli’s “Christmas Concerto,” to the Jazz Ensemble’s James-Brown-inspired arrangement of “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.”
The seating is limited and we are not allowed to reserve seats for patrons. Since the tickets sell out so quickly, we urge you to arrive with enough time to enter at 3:30pm when the doors open.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. For all children 12 and under, the admittance fee is a donation of non-perishable food item(s) at the door, or $5.
Tickets are available at the service desk at the Madison Stop & Stop with a limited number available at the door just prior to the concert. For more information, call 203- 245-0615.
Tickets will not be mailed. Please pick up your tickets at the door
Attendance by thousands of people like you have allowed MCA to give more than $70,000 since 1998 to non-profit community organizations. Non-perishable food items will benefit the Madison Community Services Food Bank which provides food items to those in need throughout the year.
This year’s concert will benefit the Madison Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N).which for years has helped many Madison neighbors in need through challenging times with many services such as oil, gas or electrical assistance and a Homebound Delivery Program that delivers pantry items, every week, to people who are needy, but are physically unable to get to the pantry.
We hope you will join us on December 10th! This year’s Winter Concert will be both a joyous celebration of the season and an opportunity to benefit our neighbors on the shoreline.

ABOUT MADISON CULTURAL ARTS
Madison Cultural Arts was founded in 1994 as the successor to the Madison Arts and Sciences Council. MCA is a diverse group of people who work to encourage the creative and performing arts in Madison. Current members’ backgrounds run the gamut from lawyers, musicians, designers, teachers and architects to those who just appreciate the arts in general. The preliminary goal of our organization was to save the Concert on the Green that had occurred on or about July 4th every year for the previous 12 or 13 years.
After the 1995 concert, the Madison Arts and Science Council turned over all responsibilities for the concert to Madison Cultural Arts which retired old debts and reinvigorated the concert. With the help of the thousands who attend and the Madison Board of Selectmen’s contributions of much needed logistical and some monetary support, MCA will continue to present the best July 4th weekend concert event that is possible.
We eventually expanded our mission to include:
The MCA Winter Concert which has been attended by hundreds of people (lately to standing-room-only audiences) and has allowed MCA to give more than $70,000 since 1998 to community organizations.
MCA is proud to be one of the founding sponsors of the The Sculpture Mile, an outstanding exhibition of contemporary sculpture (traditional and non-objective) drawn from the main stream of American art. Volunteers have now established the Hollycroft Cultural Council of Madison, a local committee for the administration of The Sculpture Mile. If you’d like to join this dynamic, enthusiastic group, please call 860-767-2624.
With more people engaged in fund raising and volunteering, opportunities will grow and, with more funds in hand, MCA can become a source for seed money for worthy endeavors that encourage the creative and performing arts. For more information, please call 203-245-0405. Come Join Us!
As an all volunteer organization, Madison Cultural Arts always needs new and wonderful volunteers to help plan and organize our concerts and programs.
