Have Yourself a Classical Christmas! Victoria Children's Choir Concert, with Special Guests

Once again the time has come to kindle your youthful holiday spirit. The Victoria Children's Choir welcomes you to their annual Classical Christmas Concert - with special guests the Victoria Baroque Players and the St. Christopher Singers.

This year's concert is brimming with nostalgia, fun, and charm. Choristers sing the 11 popular and moving French Noëls by Marc-Antoine Charpentier - with featured accompaniment by local musicians playing on period instruments. Continuing the French theme, The Choir performs holiday pieces by Henri du Mont (composer to Louis XIV) and William Byrd, as well as the first North America performance of a work by Paul Esterházy (the employer of Joseph Haydn).

The glorious voices of the Apprentice Choir will sing a round of Christmas selections, and join the Concert Choir to present well-known seasonal music, including “Walking in the Air” from the book and movie “The Snowman” by Raymond Briggs, and the “Donkey Carol” by John Rutter.

The Classical Christmas Concert comes with many festive trimmings. If you love carols in early or contemporary style, traditional music from around the world, audience sing-alongs, and timeless songs by Gallus, Kodaly, and Tavener, you'll enjoy your evening with us at the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral.

Gather your family and friends to celebrate the holiday spirit as we sing our hearts out!
