A Candlelit Christmas Concert
7.30pm Sunday 20th December 2020 (premiere)
We were delighted to bring you 2020's Candlelit Christmas Concert as an online event streamed from Morningside United Church.
We performed a variety of festive musical treats, from traditional carols to modern day classics, with many of our favourites from past years including Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen (featured on Classic FM), Jingle bells (arr.Ben Parry), Bogorodistye Djevo (Arvo Part) and All I want for Christmas is you.
The event was streamed on Facebook, Youtube and here on our website (below). It was available to watch from December 20th at 7.30pm until 31st December 2020.
We look forward to performing to a live audience again. This year, however, we welcomed everyone to our online concert, including those from around the country and overseas who might otherwise have been unable to attend.
