Join us
for this inspirational musical presentation celebrating the favorites of the season.

The audience will be afforded the opportunity to enjoy favorite holiday music, some new arrangements and a celebration of the joy of the season in the talented hands of Ray Cornils right here in the Mt. Washington Valley.

RAY CORNILS is the City of Portland’s 10th Municipal Organist. For the past 30 years he has been Minister of Music at First Parish Church in Brunswick. He is also a member of the applied music faculties at Bowdoin College, the University of Southern Maine and the Portland Conservatory of Music. He concertizes throughout the United States and abroad and is a frequent performer with the White Mountain Bach Festival.

THE KOTZSCHMAR FESTIVAL BRASS is comprised of instrumentalists who all perform with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. They have frequently performed with Ray Cornils at Merrill Auditorium and joined him for the opening concert of the American Guild of Organists Regional Convention, to rave reviews.

This holiday presentation is designed for the entire family and proceeds from the holiday program support the White Mountain Musical Arts and their presentations of live music performances in the greater Mt. Washington Valley.

White Mountain Musical Art’s purpose in presenting live musical performances throughout the year is to awaken contemporary audiences to the vitality of 17th - 20th century music through historically informed performance of both familiar and unknown works. We hope through live performances, and educational programs to foster an awareness and appreciation of this music creating a cultural experience both for the immediate Mt. Washington Valley community and for the greater population of New Hampshire’s “North Country”.
