The Frisson Ensemble

A Classic Christmas

Thursday, December 5, 2024 @ 7 p.m.

Celebrate the Holidays with this group of 11 musicians, The Frisson Ensemble, in our beautifully decorated sanctuary at Presbyterian Church of the Cross. The program includes music from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, “Winter” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Bach’s Brandenburg No. 4, Carol of the Bells, a Christmas Jazz Suite, and traditional Christmas Carols.

Based in New York City, Frisson features the best and brightest of classical music’s rising stars, most of them recent graduates from such prestigious schools as the Manhattan School of Music, the Yale School of Music, and the Juilliard School. “It is a delight to present a live holiday concert again, especially with this dynamic ensemble,” says Marcy Miller, executive director of Artist Series Concerts. “These young musicians are each brilliant in their own right and together under the artistic direction of Thomas Gallant, their musicianship and programming truly sparkle.” Founded in 2016, Frisson has since become known for its diverse repertoire and inventive musical arrangements that showcase masterworks both rare and familiar. The ensemble performs in over 25 cities annually including appearances in such diverse venues as the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City, the Da Camera Society in Los Angeles, and at the Bermuda Festival.
