St. Francis Prep and The Prayer Channel
present a
Christmas Concert III
on
Sunday, December 14th 
at
3 p.m.
to be held at 
248 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY

featuring

Prep's Chamber Orchestra
under the direction of Robert L. Johnston
and
Prep's Chamber Choir
under the direction of Rosie Pignataro

The Chamber Orchestra is beginning its second year of collaboration
with the Prayer Channel--which will soon be renamed New Evangelization Television.
 
The group had the privilege of performing for His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI at the Formal Diplomatic Departure Ceremony before an international audience. (Click here to view the link to the related story.)
 
Our young musicians have established a standard of excellence that is consistient with their great talent and high level of professionalism. The concert will feature an hour of Christmas favorites, including excerpts from "Messiah," as well as favorites from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and it is being taped for broadcast.
 
The audience will have the opportunity to see how things work during a recording session and what we do when things don't quite go as planned.

We are asking that audience members make a free-will donation to St. James Basilica as their price of admission.  Msgr. Strynkowski and the entire St. James community has been wonderfully supportive in all St. Francis Prep's efforts with both the 150th Anniversary Celebration Mass, as well as the numerous recording sessions that our musicians have undertaken there.

We hope that you will join us!!
