“When Old Becomes New: Christmas through the Ages” will be presented on Dec. 17 by the Tennessee Chamber Chorus.

The 7:30 p.m. concert will be presented at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

The Tennessee Chamber Chorus consists of 18 professional musicians. Based in Cleveland, the chorus draws professional singers from Georgia, Missouri, Ohio and West Virginia.

The inaugural concert will feature Advent and Christmas music from the Medieval and Renaissance eras as well as music through the 21th century from Spain, England, France, Germany, Norway, Canada and the U.S.

The first half of the concert will include music from earlier periods, while the second will feature new music, some of which is inspired by and harkens to earlier generations.

Composer-in-residence Susan LaBarr will have some of her works featured in the concert.

The program will be led by Cameron F. LaBarr, artistic director, and Loralee Songer, associate conductor. Mary Beth Wickes will accompany the chorus on the organ.
