Minnetonka Choral Society (MCS), under the direction of Jere Lantz, is pleased to announce our upcoming holiday concert, “Carols Old, Carols New." When Benjamin Britten composed A Ceremony of Carols while on a dangerous voyage home to England through an Atlantic Ocean infested with Nazi U-boats, he had no idea he was creating a masterpiece. He wore out his collection of centuries-old poems choosing just the right ones and fashioning them into a suite of carols with voices and harp.
