A delightful way to make merry this season is to take in a holiday concert from the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus. The Chorus take to the stage at 3 p.m. on Sunday December 11 to perform Sing Noël – an evening of classic Christmas carols performed in the beauty of Trinity United Church. The large youth choir will be joined by audience favourite Joey Kitson and guest host Valerie Moore.
Featured concert selections include both contemporary and classic Christmas carols, such as ‘Welcome Yule’, ‘In Bethlehem’, ‘Star Carol’, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’, ‘Angel Tidings’, and ‘O Holy Night.’
“I find the tradition of Sing Noël gets me in the Christmas spirit every year,” says Kitson, of Rawlins Cross. “It’s a break from the hustle and bustle; gathering with family and friends to enjoy the sounds of the season.”
The Youth Chorus is led by Donald Fraser, choral music director at Confederation Centre. “Young voices, great music, and Christmas — what could be better than that?” he offers. “The beauty and purity of these blended voices in three and four part harmonies cannot be equaled.”
