The New Choral Singers have prepared a feast of Christmas music as they present their annual seasonal concert, “Musical Tidings”. From ‘Silent Night’ to ‘Ding! Dong! Merrily on High’, and carols dating back to the 16th Century through to select pieces of our time, this heart-warming programme targets audiences of all ages.
Under the direction of Mauro Farrugia, the choir will be accompanied on the organ by world-acclaimed BBC Proms virtuoso organist and conductor, Wayne Marshall, who is currently chief conductor of WDR Funkhausorchester Cologne and Organist and Associate artist of the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. As in previous years the audience will enjoy Wayne Marshall’s skills on the organ and in the spirit of Christmas, the audience will be invited to join the choir in song for some traditional favourites.
The concerts will take place on Tuesday 18 December 2018 at St. Paul’s Pro-Cathedral, Valletta and Friday 21 December 2018 at the Jesuits’ Church, Merchant Street, Valletta. Both concerts start at 7.30pm though it is recommended to arrive early to secure a seat. Entrance is free of charge and no reservation is required. However, a retiring collection will be held at the end of both performances. More information here.
