The Oratorio Society of Virginia will present its annual “Christmas at the Paramount” program at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Paramount Theater.

Interim music director Michael Slon will lead the singers and a brass ensemble through a variety of older and newer works, including Rutter’s “Gloria,” Poulenc’s “O Magnum Mysterium,” “Lo, How a Rose” by Praetorius, the Canadian Brass arrangement of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and a variety of familiar carols.

Audience members also will get an opportunity to sing along during the concert.

Saturday’s event launches a new season for the Oratorio Society. A concert featuring performances of Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass” and Mozart’s “Solemn Vespers” will be presented at 3:30 p.m. March 18 at Piedmont Virginia Community College.

At 8 p.m. May 26, the singers will focus on French sacred music by presenting Faure’s “Requiem,” “Cantique de Jean Racine” and “Messe Basse,” as well as Saint-Saens’ “Ave Verum Corpus” and Franck’s “Ave Maria.”

To get tickets, which are $57, $27 and $17, visit or or call the Paramount’s box office at 979-1333.
