Come and Be Merry

Rejoice in Choral Christmastime with Sing Noël

Beloved holiday tradition presented at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown

Come and be merry on December 17 when the Chorus takes to the stage at 3 p.m. 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.’

“The Youth Chorus really captures the spirit of the season every year in this beautiful concert,” says Donald Fraser, choral music director at Confederation Centre. “The beauty and purity of these blended voices in three- and four-part harmonies is always something very special”.

Tickets and more info for this and other upcoming concerts are available at the box office at (902) 566-1267, toll free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at

Appreciation is extended to Maritime Electric, program sponsor for the Youth Chorus, and to Sobeys, the title sponsor for LIVE @ the Centre. Media sponsors are The Guardian, Hot 105.5, and Ocean 100.
