The holiday season is a time to gather in celebration of music and The Choral Society of the Hampton’s annual holiday concert is a welcome tradition on the East End.

This year’s Choral Society concert, “Winter Fantasia,” will be held on Sunday, December 4, at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. Performances will be offered at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. In addition to its own members, the Choral Society will be joined by professional soloists and accompanied by the South Fork Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Song-A Cho. Music by Bach, Buxtehude, Vaughan Williams and Finzi will be performed.

Walter Klauss, a frequent guest conductor of the Choral Society of the Hamptons and musical director at the First Presbyterian (Old Whalers’) Church in Sag Harbor, will lead the chorus in this performance.

“The concert presents glorious seasonal music for chorus, soloists and orchestra filling the church with joy and hope,” said Klauss. “The program ends with the audience singing carols with organ and orchestra.”

Since its founding in 1946, the Choral Society of the Hamptons has developed a repertoire of music by all the great choral composers, and attracts members from across the East End.

Tickets for “Winter Fantasia” are $35 (preferred seating tickets are $75 and student tickets are $10) available at or 631-204-9402.
