The Canterbury Singers will perform as a part of Canterbury Shaker Village’s “Christmas at Canterbury” celebrations on Saturday, Dec. 8 and Dec. 15 at 7:00pm. The group will be singing Shaker music related to Christmas and New Year's Day, including “Give Good Gifts,” “Star of Purity,” “Millennial Praise,” and “Love is Little.” Several of the songs originated at the Canterbury Shaker Village. The selections will be interspersed with carol singing for all, and followed by a procession to the Christmas tree outside for an ending ceremony.
The Canterbury Singers, which originated at Canterbury Shaker Village many years ago, is a group dedicated to the legacy of Shaker music, and is now part of the Concord Community Music School, providing a partnership between the two organizations. The Canterbury Singers’ CD, “Celestial Praises,” may be purchased at the Village or at the Music School.
Christmas at Canterbury is a chance to experience the delights of Christmas in a simpler era. In addition to the Canterbury Singers, visitors are invited to enter the historic Shaker buildings to watch an old-time 19th Century magic show, meet Father Christmas, make Christmas-inspired crafts, admire a toy train display, or listen to fiddlers. Enjoy hot cider and singing Christmas carols as we light the Village Christmas tree. This classic holiday event takes place from 3 to 8pm on December 8 & 15. Event admission is $18 for adults, $8 for children ages 6-17, free for kids younger than 5. Admission for Canterbury Shaker Village members is half price.
