This evening is quickly becoming a favourite on the Conservatorium calendar. These celebrations have something for everyone, beginning with a fun and relaxed gathering on the front lawn featuring performances from our ensembles, carol singing, fun reindeer games, and a free BBQ and drinks.
Later on in the evening, we move next door to St. Nicholas' Catholic Church where the Conservatorium Christmas Choir will perform A Capella Christmas Cantata, by Canadian composer Larry Nickel. Premiered in 2015 by the Brandon Mullet Faith Builders Chorale (Pennsylvania, USA), the Cantata’s fifteen movements give a unique and compelling rendition of the Christmas story, from ancient prophecy to the immaculate conception and until the Holy Child was two years old.
Admission is free and all are welcome to attend both parts of the celebrations. Registration is required and can be completed by visiting Eventbrite.
