“A White Mountain Christmas”
will feature Mr. Cornils,
a long-time friend of WMMA and audiences in the valley . . .

along with the Parish Ringers Bell Choir from Brunswick, Maine . . .

and the valley's own local choral group:
The White Mountain Singers, led by Mr. Tom Davidson.

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, has served as "Municipal Organist" for the city of Portland, Maine, and the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ since 1990. He is also Minister of Music at First Parish Church, UCC, in rundwick, Maine, and is on the faculties of Bowdoin College and the University of Southern Maine.

During the holiday season, Ray is normally found seated on the bench of the famed Kotchmar Organ at Merrill Auditorium in Portland, presenting the annual Magic of Christmas concert in December. This year, however, after its Centennial Festival, the beloved Kotchmar Organ, deemed “the king of instruments” continues to be given ‘a full restoration’ to secure its future, according to the FOKO website.

This holiday presentation was designed for the entire family and was underwritten by a generous grant from the Connie Davis Watson Foundation.
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”.
