HARK! - The Song Company, Australia’s national professional vocal ensemble, brings a much-needed dose of Christmas cheer to communities in Sydney – both the concert-going public and Christmas shoppers seeking an escape from commercial madness in the post-lockdown rush! Eight of our superb Sydney-based Artists sing both exquisite carols from the Renaissance and perennial audience favourites in this newly-established annual series for young and old – families are welcome! And it wouldn’t be a proper Christmas concert without the chance for the audience to join in some of the most beloved carols.
Your chance to sing along with The Song Company in old favourites with a new twist, and be captivated by the seasonal magic all over again! Whilst much of the program is a cappella, the audience sing-a-long and some of the celebratory carols will highlight the majesty and atmosphere of the church organ.
Please join us for a beautiful concert of the joyful sounds of Christmas Carols past and present – multiple performances across several days means you can fit it in among shopping, work, and Christmas parties. Forget the “weary world” of and worry and strife, and immerse yourself in a soundworld that is both familiar and fantastical – to calm your mind and set the scene for a peaceful and grateful end to 2021.
