Vienna Boys Choir to sing at Meyerhoff
For music lovers all over the world the Christmas season isn't complete without a concert by the Vienna Boys Choir. This most famous of angelically voiced choirs will make two appearances at Meyerhoff Hall at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10 and 11. They sing such favorites as "Ave Maria," "Stille Nacht" ("Silent Night") and "Away a Manger," and they also perform semi-staged, short operettas. Tickets are priced at $16 to $30. For further information, call the Meyerhoff box office -- (410) 783-8000. The first Christmas was celebrated by a homeless family, so it's appropriate that the proceeds of several performances of the Christmas opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors" will benefit the homeless. The John Carroll Opera Co. of Annapolis was created for just this purpose. And on Dec. 11, 12 and 13, led by artistic director Sebrina Alphonso, it will combine forces with the Goucher Chamber Orchestra to perform the popular Gian Carlo Menotti opera. Performances will be held at Haebler Memorial Chapel on the Goucher campus at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and $6 for students and senior citizens. For information, call (410) 337-6333.
