MUSICAL TIDINGS

Join The New Choral Singers in a feast of Christmas music as they present their annual seasonal concert entitled “Musical Tidings” on Wednesday 18 December 2019 at St. Paul’s Pro-Cathedral, Valletta and Friday 20 December 2019 at the Jesuits’ Church, Merchant Street, Valletta.

Under the direction of Mauro Farrugia, the choir will be accompanied on the organ by world-acclaimed BBC Proms virtuoso organist and conductor, Wayne Marshall, who is currently chief conductor of WDR Funkhausorchester Cologne and Organist and Associate artist of the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.  The choir will also be joined for the evening by Marouska Attard, guest soprano.

A sequence of old and new choral music for Advent and Christmas, highlights will include Adolphe Adam’s evergreen ‘O Holy Night’, Sussex carol, and arrangements of ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Jingle bells’. Music will range from 16th-century carols to select pieces of our time, making this heart-warming programme bound to appeal to audiences of all ages.

As in previous years, the audience will enjoy Wayne Marshall’s skills on the organ and in the spirit of Christmas, the audience will be invited to join the choir in song for some traditional favourites.

Entrance is free of charge and no reservation is required. However, a retiring collection will be held at the end of both performances.

Both concerts start at 7.30pm though it is recommended to arrive early to secure a seat.
