The Yellow Springs Community Chorus and Chamber Orchestra presented a grand holiday musical spectacle with the performance of Benjamin Britten’s “St. Nicolas,” featuring tenor Vincent Davis, at the First Presbyterian Church Sunday, Dec. 18. Overlooking the ensemble from the choir loft was the trio singing the part of the “pickled boys” — three children said to have been brought back to life by the saint — from left, David Walker, Eliza Minde-Berman and Danny Grote; organist Susanne Grote is at right.

Under the organizational prowess and direction of James Johnston, the Yellow Springs Community Chorus and Community Orchestra presented Benjamin Britten’s “St. Nicolas”. The cantata was written expressly to be performed by amateur and professionals alike and in concert; even the audience is invited to sing at one point during the program.

The production featured local talent, as well as extra percussionists, an organist, and children’s voices.
