CHRISTMAS WITH THE NEW CHORAL SINGERS
The New Choral Singers will once again be presenting its annual Christmas concert, Musical Tidings, to celebrate the advent of Christmas.
This highly anticipated event will usher in the Christmas season with the joyous sounds of beautiful carols that celebrate the Nativity, under the musical direction of Simone Attard. There will be two concert performances which will be held on the 13th December at the Ta’ Xbiex Parish Church and on the 17th December at the Floriana Parish Church. Both concerts will commence at 7.30pm.
The concerts will feature cherished favourites such as Silent Night, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Ninni La Tibkix Iżjed. The choir will also be showcasing new pieces from its repertoire, such as a beautiful arrangement of the traditional carol Ding! Dong! Merrily On High and Sir Christèmas by William Mathias, to mention a few. In the spirit of Christmas, the audience are more than welcome to join the choir in song for a few traditional favourites.
This year’s concerts will also feature the participation of the Mirabitur Youth Choir, also under the direction of Simone Attard, who will perform a few items with the New Choral Singers. Shirley Helleur will accompany the choir on the piano while Fr. Aurelio Mulé Stagno SDB will join in with the organ.
Admission to both concerts is free of charge. A retiring collection will be made in aid of the Richmond Foundation, which is doing valuable community work to promote mental well-being, whilst addressing the prevention of mental health problems and providing support for good quality of life.
