The Friends of the Charlestown Branch Library
& St. Mary-St. Catherine of Siena Parish

The Annual Holiday Concert


The Copley Singers, under the direction of Brian Jones, will perform carols, anthems and Christmas favorites—ancient and modern—from Europe and the Americas. Some examples will be sung a capella; others will be accompanied by the restored Woodberry & Harris organ. The audience will be invited to join in festive and solemn carols. Wheelchair accessible. Conveniently located near the Orange line and bus connections.

Seasonal joy and inspiration are promised in abundance!

The Copley Singers, a Boston-based choir founded in 2006, are auditioned singers and professionals dedicated to the art of fine singing and the joy of communicating their love of the art to the public. Brian Jones, Emeritus Director of Music at Trinity Church, Copley Square, is an active organ concert artist and guest conductor with many recordings to his credit. Peter Stoltzfus Burton, Organist and Choirmaster at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Newport, will support the choir and congregation. The sonically amazing Woodberry & Harris Opus 100 has 3 manuals, 37 stops and 41 ranks of pipes (2,501 pipes).

The Friends of the Charlestown Branch of the Boston Public Library was formed in 1953, becoming the second Friends group to organize within the Boston Public Library system. The Friends schedule four to six evening programs a year, support the Reading is FUNdamental programs for children, and maintain the library’s landscaping.

The mission of the Friends remains today what it was in 1953: to serve as an advocacy and support group for the needs of the Charlestown Branch Library, its staff and users.
